Your block being a 4-bolt, really IS "HP", AFA production blocks go.
No idea on the "F", sorry.

396, deck pad # help, Thanks
Thanks again. What does the "B" to the lower right of the last letter "F" mean?
This thing has "hi perf" cast all over it...maybe 8 places.
I'll see if I can attch a pic....

Casting number is for a '65-'66 396 4-bolt block.
EF 1966 396 360 Chevelle HP
EF 1967 396 350 Chevelle HP
EF 1968 396 350 Chevelle HP
A casting date in '65 doesn't necessarily mean it went into a '65 vehicle- it could have been used in '66, depending on the month. In the case of an "11", it would indicate your block was cast in November, and would not have been installed in a '65 vehicle.

Not sure how accurate this info is, but it matches what you have, other than it being a '66, instead of a '65. (but the K-2-5 shows it's a late-'65 block...specifically Nov. 2, 1965) It's actually T1104EF instead of TII04EF.
