Its a 307 engine, originally used with manual trans. Same block # 010 as the 302,327,350, but its a 307.

Re: Engine ID anyone have a idea?

That is not just your regular 010 block.

That is an 010/020 block. It has an additional 1% tin and 2% nickel.

Re: Engine ID anyone have a idea?

Ok just pulled the pan crank is 1130 which shows as forged 327.
Does anyone know how to tell the difference in the rods?

So much for this 'Chevrolet Small Block V-8 Interchange Manual' by David Lewis! Sorry if I led you astray. This book is apparently not very good!

Thumbs up Re: Engine ID anyone have a idea?

lol I appreciate the input deerhunter . What might be throwing this off is that it didn't come out of a car.... but I know it is a all original engine..... just was trying to figure out exactly what I have (its lookin good so far). I am pretty sure it is a 69 or earlier.

"DA".....

1965 to '67, 195hp/283, 2-barrel, 3-speed A-body, and

1968 to '69, 200hp/307, 2-barrel, 3-speed, A/F/X-bodies.

I bet it will bore .155" over EASY!!

Re: Engine ID anyone have a idea?

to many characters in that engine suffix code.

V01062DA
V=Flint Engine Plant
01= January
06=6th day of the month
2=?
DA = a 65 283 or a 68 307, neither of which used a 3970010 casting since it didn't reach production until April of 69.

All 70 and later 010 blocks destined for a car or truck should have a 3 digit suffix starting with either a C (cars) or T (truck).

If it was a mistamp of some kind there is a CDA suffix code that was for a 1972 L65 350/165HP engine with a manual transmission and a 2 barrel carb used in A and X bodies. There was also a 72 TDA coded engine which was a 307 ci engine used in C10's and C20's. There were other CDA and TDA coded engines but none within the time the 010 block was used (69 to 79).

Is there a partial VIN on the block, either on the engine pad, or down by the oil filter?

Either that or simply read the old thread and become enlightened. It's a friggen 307, at least it is according to the original information, and the latest engine has the same stamping code, DA. Doesn't really take a brain sturgeon to figure that out.

*No disrespect meant or implied to any of the participants of this thread.* YMMV.
