Are you going to keep us insuspense much longer?

Did you drop the pan, is it a 2blt or 4blt main? Really dosn't matter....I was told the 262/265sbc in my 37 Dodge was a 350 with a power glide..it was a 262/265sbc with a th350 without highgear??? Some people lie..some don't know their Aze from a hole in the ground...You got a 350sbc for $100....you win!!!

Great feedback

I will look up the crank numbers. thanks for the tip. I bought this car several years ago and have been planning on building a work shop. This past June I finished the work shop (1100 sq. ft.) and moved my project car in. I don't have a huge budget as I am still paying for the shop. I have some time and a lot of entheusiasm. I really am thankful for all the feedback and I have taken notes from this forum. Thanks guys I will post some of my findings tomorrow after I turn the engine over and remove the pan. I will take a picture and get the crank part number if I can find it. I sure don't have the money to start buying the wrong size parts.

The Engine number/V.I.N. code ( 19J141972 V1012FB )
says it is a 69 327 with 235 HP from a 69 full size passenger car ... that was equipped with a Powerglide ...
The Block casting number also coincides and supports this ...

The FB in the engine number/V.I.N. code is the key ...
The Chevrolet Small Block ID code book has listings for all the small blocks ... and there are two listings with FB ... but only one for a block with the 3932386 casting number on the block ...

Deuce, Thanks for the information

I am pleased 327 is good for me. I appreciate you taking time to help and look up the numbers for me. I feel I can proceed knowing what I have. It was sold to me as a 350 out of a truck but 327 is great. I especially like that the casting number is the same as the DZ for the 69 302 Z28 camaro. Not that his engine will perform the same but It is a pretty cool thought. Thanks again Ron

you can put a 350 crank (348 stroke) in that block and have a 350cid motor or put a 283 crank (3.00 stroke) in that block and have a 302cid motor. or I think a 327 crank was a steel crank (someone will correct me if I'm wrong)

I know the question has already been answered several times, but the process might be helpful.

Following the link to the KB that Jon posted gets:

http://www.hotrodders.com/kb/showlin...m/sbcmenu.html

which leads to 'Engine Block Casting Numbers':

http://www.nastyz28.com/sbchevy/sblock.html

which shows:

1969 3932386 302 290 290 4 Camaro Z28
1969 3932386 327 210 210 2 Camaro
1969 3932386 350 300 350 4 LT1

and leads to 'Small Block Engine Suffix Code Menu':

http://www.nastyz28.com/spmenu.html#suffix

which leads to 'Small Block Chevy Suffix Codes: DTR - HQ':

http://www.nastyz28.com/sbchevy/spcode5.html

which shows:

1955 FB 265 Power Pack, glide 155 4 car & truck
1969 FB 327 Powerglide 235 2 full size

2 bolt mains.

I took the oil pan cover off. The engine was 2 bolt mains. I did not find the crankshaft number. I will have to look at my overhaul manual to see where the number is located on the crank..

Engine codes.

Your block is a 327, Althought it uses the same block casting numbers as a 350, the engine code on the front of the block is what is stamped on the engine when the engine is on the assembly line and going to be placed in the vehicle. The "V" in the stamp code indicates that this 327 was built in Flint, Michigan and the "FB" designator determined that this engine was installed in a 1969 Chevrolet Impala full size sedan. It was the base engine with 235 horepower mated to a powerglide and had a two barrel. Being as this was a 1969 327, it is a large journal (2.45 main and 2.100 rod) with a 3.25" stroke. This information can be very valuable in seeking out core engines. Purchase a GM suffix engine code book for about $15.00. It shows almost all the build codes and will show you which vehicle the engine was installed in, what transmision it had and also the horsepower rating and carb type. Hope this helps you. Good luck on your project!
