Friend of mine just purchased a 57 Chevy pick up in need of much repair. The engine is a small block with a engine code of T0329G5. He pulled the valve cover and it had the cast # 884520. I look at Mortec.com and could not find the head cast # listed. Any ideas on what this engine could be?

You are missing a number on the heads it should be 3884520 which were 60-67 283 and 62-67 327 heads. Also the block number stamped on the block is probably T0329GS not G5 which is a 66 283 2bbl 195hp 4 speed with air. Assembled March 29. Without the casting date you can't tell for sure if it was March of 66 or not but most likely it was. If you got the casting dates off of the heads and block they may match within a window of some days to weeks and you would find you had a 66 283. The casting number off the block would also help identify what you have there. GL

Thanks for the help. There is an old 2brl intake that came with the truck that supports the information you provided.

The great little motor "that did!!", imho..

Love'm... They just kinda run SOOO GOOOD for their size..

You can hop onna the little buggers up and drop it in an early Duece Coupe or Vega/Monza that's tired and geared right AND go have more fun with the 5.0's and Ricers then the Law will allow!!

And you may even supprise a lot bigger motored car or five!!!
