My chevy engine type??

thought i had a 327 per the previous owner, but after more reading, i may have a 350...

Here's what i have on the block:

11B110539 K08 28 CJD

from what i gathered, it was made in Canada on Aug 28. The CJD appears to be a 350 from 1971.

Any help would be appreciated.

Once i get the engine ID, i want to replace the carb (current is a 2jet rochester with manual choke) in conjunction with the fuel tank and lines.

im still having engine starting problems, it wont turn over. after checking the distributor, i am getting sparks. but no current going through the plug wires. is it the ignition coil. suggestions?

thanks for replying, excuse my lack of knowledge/ description on this subject. it is using points. when we hit the starter with the disributor cap off, it would rotate and the current was visable (saw sparks). my buddy took a plug wire off the plug and we tested to see if there was any current getting to the plug. there wasn't.

i had it running a couple of months ago, but even then it was touch and go when i could turn the engine over.

Torque specs for rear end

I am building a 1957 Chevy truck rear end. I would like to know if anybody here has the torque specs for the ring gear bolts and the rotational torque specs for the preload on the pinion gear and the ring gear carrier. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

The e-brake we got is from a chevy van (im not sure the year because i was busy when my dad got it). It is smaller and we had to just cut about an inch off so that it would fit right. We have reinforced teh firewall with sheet metal, and have our new column, hanging brake, ebrake, and gas pedal all ready. I do not have pics right now, but i will post some today or tomorrow.

Bemore, You got a bad coil ,buddy. its a simple fix.But after you replace it and get the truck running again you should seriously concider getting a newer elctronic one from the bone yard....or a new one if your budget allows for it..I cant remember for sure but I think all the 350's had electronic ignition so your engine has a good possibility of being a 327 ,a great little engine..and very popular even today...

To the best of my knowledge the 350 came out in 1967. The first electronic ignition came out in 1975 or 76,so there were 350's with points.Hope this helps.Also if the intake was never changed,all 327's had an oil fill tube in the front and no 350's had it.Just 1 way to tell if it is a 350.One more thing again if engine is unchanged 327's only had valve covers that had a pad in the middle for a sticker that said 327 and the top of the cover was Ved down in the middle from front to back. Hope this helps.

where are you located? (that usa thing is sort of vague)
Ok i went and looked at the truck, I took a few pictures from outside the fence, Then i called the owner and he told me to go on in and have a look.
So you guy's please give me your input on this how much do you think it is worth, The guy told me it was a confiscation for money owed for storage and he will let me have it right but it has to sit a little longer to get a title from the state. But he told me he knows it's his truck the guy will not pay him. So i will just have to wait and see for sure though. This stuff can go either way.
I don't know what engine is in it all i know is it has a chevy firing order.
