Casting # 3932386 is a 4.000" block used to make 302, 327, and 350 engines in 1969. Can be either 2 or 4 bolt main, you will have to inspect it too know which it is. The "9" in 19J means installed in 1969 vehicle, the 176917 is the last 6 digits of the original vehicles VIN. "V"= Flint plant, "1209" is Dec 9th, "HH" is 350 cubic inch 300 hp 4 barrel w/ TH400 transmission, in a full size car(Caprice/Impala/Biscayne).
