I need help with small block engine ID chevy

I have a 350 but i'm not sure of the date it was manufactured and where, if you can help please give as much info as possible. I did look on several web sites and had no luck. The numbers are VA065270.
Thanks, jklmbrand.

I have found Mortec.com to be very informative on finding dates and numbers on Chev engines. Mike

The date code should be just above the bellhousing, If the engine is stilll in the car it makes it a bit harder to see the stamping.

On the back of the block there should be the block code and just over a bit from that should be the date code.
