Hi Keith, I know this 366T/427T subject is going to keep coming up with the shortage of 9.800" 454 blocks. The fly in the ointment will be 366 pistons. Can you post the mfg and part number of the pistons you used? Do you know if they're still available? I can visualize the 366 with one or a couple of boneyard Eaton blowers adapted.

Engine numbers

We have a 366 in ´67 Camaro and I would like to know what the stamped numbers in the front means.
It is T0221AHB.
I get the beginning Tonawanda February 21 but what stands AHB for?

Hope someone can help me.

My book shows this to be a '74 366 with a 4bc from Chevy or GMC truck or school bus rated at 200 Hp. This all the info I have, hope it helps.

Building a 366 and not a 454, is like building a 283 instead of a 350. Makes sense sometimes, but most times not.

I'm trying to get an original one (less than 42000 on it) from a local tow truck driver. I want to put it in an 84 GMC K1500 4x4 with a 4spd. Good? Yes? No? I wanna make it a trail truck, so I think I will have enough torque with this motor, eh?

you must have gotten that quote from me. "you can polish a turd all you want but in the end you still just have a turd"

i would actually say that the 396 is the 305 of big blocks and that the 366 is the 265 of big blocks. it's just hard to make a bunch of power out of them cause the have a small bore
