Re: Connecting Rods Numbered
The other thing I thought was pretty crazy was the amount of stamps, punched, all over the rim where the oil pan sits. Also had stamps on top of the Pistons that matched some on the rail like a weight or measurement.
I don't think it's out of the question they were stamped. A couple of things I thought it may be related to are either a quality check where they tore down to check tolerance and reassembled or something like a 'hospital' line. Maybe after assembly there was an issue where they had to get in the engine after the car was started. That's just a guess, I don't think the rod stamp was normal but it seems to have shown up before on some of the Corvette forums when I researched it before.
This L48 was assembled in July of '69 if that matters.
