This is another engine from my fathers collection he stashed away years ago , a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 302 engine , chevy small block motor . This empty motor�Block has the following casting numbers�# 3932386� date coded L128 , stamped V1218DZ on the front stamping pad , the Vin�stamping by the oil filter looks to be 19N368469. The casting numbers in the timing area are : 371 G47 386 and HB outside the timing cover area . Casting numbers in the bell area are : 636 678 371 386 H3 . Casting numbers near the oil filter are :371 386 62N .
 ���� This 4 bolt main block was large journal 2.45 , and used for 1969 350 Corvette 300/350hp. , Camaro 1969 302 z/28 , and 1968 69 327 Passenger car nova chevelle .
 ��� This one as my uncle told me the story� goes , my father worked in the Oldsmobile dealership garage and had friends that worked at the chevy dealerships garages . He Got this block from one of the friends that worked at the chevy dealership . A guy had bought a 1969 Camaro Z/28 302 car new�put about� 5000 miles on it , he walked out to it next day and it was leaking oil on his garage floor . He took it back to the dealer to fix the oil leak they could 'nt fix it so�Chevrolet sent him out a warranty replacement block . They took every thing off the old block and put it in the new one and put the new warranty block in the car and away he drove.
 ���� My uncle said the problem with the block was the push in plug above the oil filter { as pictured } , and if you look at the picture it looks like the mechanic tried to peen it over more to seal it�, But it must not have worked .
 ��� This has been sitting for years�, about 35 or 40 , �It has surface rust from sitting around , the cylinder walls were greased� at one point and the spots where they were surface rusted it cleaned right of for the most part with a wire wheel in a drill { as pictured}.My father also greased the lifter bores again many years ago.
 ����� I have more pictures if needed , if you have any questions please ask , and if shipping is needed ask I might be able to do something .� I also have on another auction a mostly complete 1968 MO code z/28 302�engine, if you have any questions call 585 -682-5595 no text please this number don't get them .

I wish it was about a week earlier on the stamp!  I just had an engine built for my Z but not close to being date correct.

Probably 19N568 on the VIN.  That would have probably been in a 12C car, and mines a 12B.

Close, but no cigar!
