Dug out a Book entitled Chevtolet Book of Numbers Volume 2 1953 - 1964 and if there is anyone who may be able to figure out what the heck a Group 10.469 is or was back then, apparently Chevy did not punch the total serial number of the unit, but just the last 2 numerics. In this case 42 is punched on the flexplate, but my book only states "plate" and that is it.  Plate for what???
Thanks!

Good morning John!!  Got one here that is stamped maybe, by a service garage showing the suffix code "ET"  and a partial date on the starter pad.  Can put up the pics if you'd like to peruse.

Did not some CE blocks show the original suffix code and date of the blown engine if'n you flipped the engine over and had a peek at the starter pad??
Have a '70 replacement 9854 block for an "ET" suffix Chevelle that is stamped in this above area.

Good evening John!!
Please advise what the (3) indentures are on the flexplate at  the 3 o'clock position in pics 1 and 2 - i.e. same photo. 
Just saw an ORIGINAL  maybe 66 Vette go over the block at BJ and the $$ it brought.. Was completely original down to some paint imperfection(s) on psgr door.  I'd rather see machines like that in their innocence than re-done re-painted to the max units.
Thanks John!!

The original engine for that flexplate could be long-gone by now and most likely is.. What would happen if I put that plate and a balancer together on an engine other than the long-gone one.?

Thing I do not understand is why would they apply the production welded balance weight to the flexplate that allready had  3 balance holes on it??

Did GM balance specific parts that would be working together before engine assembly??

Thanks!!

Thing is, I never had a 400ci with a crank such as the imprint on the flexplate which is the same as a small journal unit from 1962-67..  Anyone else seen a balance weight such as the one pictured on a T350 or T400 plate?  What does the coding number 42 mean?

22  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: T350 Flexplate with a stamping . . . on: January 20, 2011, 02:11:35 AM
Possible it was from a T400 but, it does not ring a bell so to speak. Number 42 on it could lead me in right direction but no one yet has stepped up..  Just picked up a copy of Colvin's Corvette by the Numbers 1955 - 1982 and on pg. 114, the imprint of the crank flange on the flex plate looks an awful lot like the 327 flange for  1962 - 1967.
Guess we gonna have to wait for Mr. John Z to help . . .
Thanks!

Here is the one that was omitted - a closeup of the dowel thingy.

It's a comin' real soon.  Just got to get me fine lady to gimme a hand in down loading the  pics eh.
 Kinda interesting as this dowel thingy is about a half inch from the ring gear and is about 1/2 inch in diameter.. No way a crank flange is that large..

26  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / T350 Flexplate with a stamping . . . on: January 18, 2011, 03:38:19 PM
Going through my flexplates and I came across a plate with a 42 stamping on it.. On the other side of the part is a 1/2" dowel pin I guess there to mate  the crank flange  and the plate.
Have a few T350 flexplates and this is the only one with the dowel pin.. When did they stop coming out with this feature??  Hoping it is common to a '68 396 L35 engine.. Has overspray on it,  could this be from GM as they painted  the engine / transmission assembly??
Thanks!!

My mistake gentlemen.. Had me wires crossed.. so to speak.. Thermostat housing is on another intake that was just picked up and not from the Tri...
Hope all you guys get a real good Thanksgiving "goose".. Up here in the cold country there is freezing rain a going on and very dangerous driving.
Ed, I hope things work out for you, and, above all,  stay busy!!

Need to verify a thermostat housing for a 427 435hp intake.. Looks like a Julian date of 1595 and a couple of back to back "C" s. Also there is a small return spring hole similar to a  660 housing.
Thanks !!

My next project on the list is to identify the oil pans and the timing covers.. Would'ja happen to have a pic of both the timing cover and the oil pan to make it easier on the old eyes??  After many coats of can paint, a bit murky, eh...
Thanks!
