The FC suffix relates to these engines.......

FC 1955 265 Powerglide, a/c - - car
FC 1957 283 Powerglide - 4 car
FC 1969 327 tur hydro trans. 235 2 B F

I'm thinking its a 69 327......the 55 and 57 wouldn't have the bosses for the side mounts.

0717 is july 17th

need casting date off the block to determine year

is is on top ledge somewhere same as how the block casting raised numbers code is

last number is the the last digit of the year it was cast in

for example A129 will be jan 12 '59 '69 or '79 or '89, see

and i know that it is a 70-up block because it has a TKT three digit suffix stamping code

anything '69 older was only two digit such as the other person in this thead's FC code

yah the early nova engines were like that so the oil filter could clear those chevy II chassies haha


unique blocks for those cars yeah

i totally forgot all about those til you said something haha

on a side note recently we had an old guy pull up in our shop drive with a really sharp mostly stock 64 or so chevy II nova and it had a warmed over 355 in it and it was pure bright white with all the stock trim and chrome pieces on it, and red vinyl interior that was mint condition spotless everywhere.,


the whole neighborhood was all over it checking it out

he wanted us to do a repair on one of the hood hinges.

he only gave like 1500 or some crazy sheep liek that for it and was one of those tightwads who manmages to find a steal by some crazy miracle but on purpose.

heard he sold it and now has a different old muscle car i forgot what now and got it for next to nothing as well

crazy.......

Would be good if you got the numbers off the back of the block, drivers side.

P.S. Early Nova blocks had a recessed oil filter to clear the power-assist. You could use a non-Nova block, with a shorter spin-on oil filter. But blocks with the old cannister filter can't be used...unless you use an adapter to convert to spin-on filters.

My information shows the Chevy II blocks had a recessed filter to clear the clutch linkage cross shaft,... to use a non-Chevy II block with a mechanical clutch linkage several of the Nova resto suppliers sell a special aftermarket clutch pivot ball bracket to bolt to a non-Chevy II block.

Maybe it is a combo of both power steering slave clearance and clutch linkage clearance that the filter pad is recessed?? Anybody out there know for sure??

My first '67 I had back in the late-80's had a 194 6cyl, which I converted using a 283 from a 65 malibu. I knew I had to dump the cannister-type oil filter and get an adapter for a screw on filter. And since front-sump nova pans/oil-pump pickup parts weren't easily attainable, the only choice I had was a deep-sump early nova "notched" pan from Milodon...but the "ram" (power assist) and hoses had to be removed.

From what I understand, the recessed oil filter was made to clear the clutch cross-shaft/linkage as well. Never saw an original set-up personally, but attained a couple of 283-nova blocks over the years. They both came from automatic-novas, but had the pivot-ball holes for clutch linkage.

On another note, my last '67 nova was converted to 4sp. by the previous owner, using chevelle parts (and a typical SBC with a normal oil filter location). Actually worked good, with one exception...the clutch fork would hit the floor pan when pushing down on the clutch. He made a notch in the floor (just to the left of the gas pedal). Geometry must have been good...that was the softest pedal-pressure I've ever felt using a three-finger clutch. No herky-jerky feel in the pedal. The orignal early-nova bell housings had the clutch fork clocked-down to clear the floor pan.
