richard stewart 3rd Hi
The "V" is a Flint engine.

Casting Date
Small block casting date is located on driver side rear of block on flange forward of bellhousing. Big block on the right side of engine above the oil pan rails.
Casting Date Example: E038 - (E = Month, 03 = Day, 8 = Last digit of model year (1978)).

Month: A = Jan, B = Feb, C = Mar, D = Apr, E = May, F = Jun, G = July, H = Aug, I = Sep, J = Oct, K = Nov, L = Dec

dodgeboy12008 This is the hand stamped number on the pass side front, vl112832. The block casting number, 14016379, spans from 78 through the 80s so it doesnt help with the gasket kit split.

68NovaSS I don't find a GM SB with a suffix code vl in any of my references. Is that part of the stamped code from the pad in front of the passenger side head? If not, what makes you feel it's a vl? What's the full stamped codes?

Help id chevy block

I have a chevy 350 block that I need to get a gasket set for, but, I dont know which one I need. I have seen two different sets, one for up to 80 and one for 81-85. The block, I was told, is a gm goodwrench block. It has a suffix of vl. Can anyone help with what year this block is or what the difference in gasket sets are? Thank you.
