Chevy block ID
On 09/29/2012 at 04:43 pm, I gave all the infomation to ID this block in a thread titled Chevy Engine Module Number on page 2 of the engine section. Someone has moved the thread also.

The 126 castings came on 327 and 350 engines from 1967 to 1970.
They have 1.94 intake and 1.50 exhaust valves. None of the sites list a chamber size for these heads however by looking at a picture they appear to be 74cc's. They likely don't have hardened exhaust seats and they also may not have accessory holes.

I have a Chevy Small Block Parts Interchange Manual by Ed Staffel, SA Design Books.
It shows this casting number was used for 3 different engines:
1. A 1969 302 with 4 bolt mains in a Z-28 Camaro
2: A 1969 327 with 2 bolt mains in trucks and industrial engines
3. A 1969 thru 1980 2 or 4 bolt main in most anything on the assembly line.
The head number doesn't appear in my book.
