General Discussion / Re: XXB suffix code
« on: May 28, 2018, 06:09:18 AM »
I am 73, I just adore the sbc 327. I agree it was the best combo all around in the 4" bore small block, The only thing better was the 302. The Camaro convertible I'm restoring is a 67 with a 3L and 4P code
(RS SS 350). I want to get it as close to numbers matching as I can so it is necessary to build the date matching 657 block to a 350. As I said in one of my previous posts I need to know if the XXB code could include a 300hp 350.

Ed, I just closed the deal on the RSSS350 and will start moving stuff to my place sat, 140 mile trip to Henderson.  It is a solid project and comes with two garages full of parts. I figure three pickups full.
I know the 657 will work, my dilemma is will the XXB suffix code work for a 350 or did they just use it for the 327? as per the crank, I was going to have the mains on the crank machined to sj but when I told that to a good friend who is very savvy about such things, he just said "duh, don't you think it would be better to make the line bore large journal". I think I will go with the "duh" idea :).  Thanks again for your help with this info. and if you know if they used the XXB code on the 350 let me know.  Jim

Thanks to everyone for the comments and info. I am looking into doing an RSSS350  67 convertible.   P coded. Would this XXB work for a 350?
I have the 350 crank and just about everything I need to make it a 350. The date numbers on the block and heads are two weeks earlier than the build date so if the XXB will work it will be great.

Thanks Ed, Great info. That is good news, I was thinking it might be marine or industrial.
Are you sure as to the (except high performance)? It has double hump heads and polished or crude chrome finish valve covers.
Did they use double hump heads with 1.94 valves on the lower HP 327s?
I am looking to buy this motor but if it isn't at least 300HP the seller is asking too much for it.
The seller took it out of his deceased dads 57 chevy and all he knows is his dad replaced the 283 with it in 67.
Thanks again for the info.   Jim

I have found a 1967 (J 13 6) 3892657 block. It has a suffix code V1013XXB.
The broach is true so It is not a restamp. I cannot find any accurate information on this XXB.
One post seems to think it is a part counter motor made in Mexico which does not work because it is a Flint block made in 1966 when GM didn't get any parts from Mexico
If anyone has any info on this please enlighten me.

Mark, Thanks for the lead about fuel lines. I just started tearing the under carrage out to replace it from the lower cowel back and there was one line to the fuel pump but the fuel sender unit has two fittings on it. One was in use and the other was pluged off. The lines seem to be 3/8" to the fuel pump and 1/4" pluged. The pluged line was done with a small peace if hose with a bolt screwed into it. The tank and sender unit look original. Do the lines run together? It didn't appear that there was another line that had been removed but there is a lot of rust and I really can't tell if there was or wasn't. How and where would the return line be attached to the front subframe. There is quite a bit of rust on it but I might be able to find some remains where it attached.   Did all the 69 super sports have a return fuel line? Thanks  Jim

What I am asking is if this could be an non coded SS and how do I find out for sure. All my vin code says is it had a V8 motor and is a convertible. Does any one know if they produced non coded super sports at the end of may in 69. I am noy sure it is fake as much as I am not sure it is real.   ?????????

Hi, I have a 69 Camaro convertable that I am restoring. I don't know what it originaly was excepr a basket case. Any emblems were removed. It has disc brakes and 5 leaf rear springs. it is not X coded. The build date is 5D. I have found a casting and date matching 350 block, heads, intake, carb and built it into a 300 HP. My question is will I be ok to make it a SS.      Jim
