Re: Engine ID anyone have a idea?
to many characters in that engine suffix code.
V=Flint Engine Plant
06=6th day of the month
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?
