Engine casting numbers

Hey all you smart folks!!

I have an engine that I want to know more about. Its a BBC Casting number 3999290 with the following numbers stamped on it: Conv GM9T, 621 72, HI Per Pass, F9. Also have the heads to it, #6272292.

I picked it up from a guy in Dallas when I bought a 327 for some one else. Thanks for the help!!!

Re: Engine casting numbers

Thanks, but I was looking for more than what Mortec could give me. I was told it is a 402 1972 out of a Chevelle, but don't know how to read the rest of the numbers. Thanks for those quick responses.
