Engine Suffix Code

On the engine ledge of the V6 is the engine information... I know it came out of a Chevy conversion van, but Chevrolet is keeping the code for that a secret and you cannot read the last letters on the ledge.... I know now, that the first character was not a J but a T for Tonawanda and the next four digits stand for the month/day, but oh how I would like to know was the engine suffix code it is for a 1985 Chevy cargo van.....

part box is a no no...

If you want my opinion of boxing back to the end of the cab, I would not do it, unless you box the whole frame... as it will break a lot quicker with the frame twisting from there back, the frame will crack at the end of the box... I would do an engine mount that fits under the pan from one side to the other, bolted in, this will take that front twist out of the frame, that usually happens when outside engine mounts are used, on just the frame itself, one on each side is too much for a channel frame... With the wide (both sides) type of mount, there is only downward force... same as the stock factory engine mounts were that were in that truck stock... JMHO BTDT
