Need help in identifying block 3970010 in a 69 Camaro, Show it as a 350 and a 302 stamp how can I discover which? Has a staamp on right hand side just below drivers side by firewall 3970010 with a 37 stamped just above it, also there is a bolt on tab just above the header on right side that has 3995607. Would like to find out where to look for other numbers has an edlebrock head on it so no head numbers avail.

69 (May be SS350 but has no lourverd head lamps and all X11 Body code on trim tag)

What is the alpha-numeric code on the little pad up by the Pass. side water pump outlet??

Take the alpha code part and go over to Mortec and check out what it is.

Otherwise if it has been machined off, I really don't think you can tell what you have unless somebody else can chime in here to help you out..

Lovered headlights would be an RS which could also be an option with the SS. If you think yours is a SS check the location as pdq67 stated along with the alternate location down by the oil filter. (See link to CRG)

If your VIN in a late one it might be there. ALso will have the engine code suffix which will tell you what engine you have.

Also are the hood spring orginal to the car that you know of? http://www.camaros.org/underhood.shtml#HoodSprings

good luck

TKS PDQ67 AND HAWAIIANCAMARO...Follow up Just behind the alternator on a tab are 2 rows of numbers first row larger V09377 and a small row 195403175. Appreciate the help. Also have major seal leak on THM400 #3950176 tab on bolt. Some rust not visible during the heat of buying so far that is where we are at//but a hell of a conversation starter with my 16 and 18 year old boys .. they are interested more by the day (want to drive it hard mostly).

Unhappy

The closest I come to it is out of the "Ultimate American V-8 Engine data book 1949 to 1974" by Peter C. Sessler is a TKT that is a 350, four barrel, 160hp, TH350 auto, 1974 C10 and K10 truck motor!

I gotta feeling you do indeed have a P/U truck motor that is newer than that!! But I would have to search the Motor Manual codes at the Public Library to get to it.. pdq67

PS., I'm sorry I thought Mortec listed the alpha codes..
