I know that crate engines don't usually have the casting code so I'm thinking its a crate? I was told when I first bought it that it was either a 71 or 77 (can't remember the year he said) corvette engine. I think it's a 71 because he also had a 71 stingray at the time an I think he put that stock engine in the elky. Any ideas? If u need pics to maybe help just say so. Please and thanks guys.
Use the casting numbers and date code. If there is no suffix code, it was removed during block decking or was never there in the first place (OTC block or possibly a replacement engine).
