CTB 70 350 Camaro 360 Z-28 Manual 4-Brl Holley, Hp Solid Cam
CTB 75 400 Chevelle 175 LT-4 T-H 400 4-Brl
CTB 78 305 Monza 145 LG-3 TH 350 2-Brl

Next we need the casting number which is on the drivers side rear on the bellhousing flange to see which of the three engines it is.

THANKS! already alot farther than I have gotten so far, It is going to be hard to impossible to see where it is still in the car but I will try. Just bought it and have not pulled engine out to start the project. I know it has double hump heads on it for a nice start.
