85CHEVY Thanks, I'll check that out.

Arcuden If the engine is not yet installed in the vehicle, check behind the timing cover or on the rear of the block behind the flywheel for "010" (1% added tin) or "020" (2% added nickel), or both. The numbers are big and easily noticed.

There's another thread going on here somewhere debating the benefit of having a harder block (extra nickel).

85CHEVY Vortec heads are going on it. So it is not one of the higher nickel content blocks?

junior stocker I had one of those. Had less than 20k miles on it, but was 8 yrs old, when it dropped #8 exhaust valve. Still have the block and crank. Those blocks must be awfully "soft" as there was quite a ridge for the miles it had on it. Still going to use it again one day.

Is this casting # known to be a good block

Hi everyone, I have almost got my engine done; should be running by Monday. Just wondering if this casting number (10066036 Hecho en Mexico) is known to be a good block. It is a 4-bolt main block.
