Engine Id numbers
Anybody willing to help with ID'ing the engine that has this partial VIN & engine code stamped into the front right pad?
Cannont get it narrowed down to one fairly positive answer.
So far, research on the engine number has show as posibilities:
65 Chevy full size
69 Camaro, Chevelle or Nova.
The partial VIN is of no use as nothing I have found has the double "LL" before the unit production number. Only thing I am certain about is that whatever this was, there were 32205 made before it!
The block casting #3858180
Head casting #3890462
Also, the end of each head has what looks like a plug or insert of some type, I have never seen anything like this either, any idea what those are??
The "plug" on the end of the heads is actually a glued on tag that is intended to melt and fall off should the owner overheat his engine following a rebuild. If the tag is off following engine problems, the rebuilder will void the warranty claiming abuse.
Appreciate the info.
All i show on that 3858180 casting is that it's a 300 horse 327 from 1964 to 1967 with 2 bolt mains. wish i could help more.
Thank you, appreciate that.
