As far as intake and exhaust runner size, as well as combustion chamber, there is no difference.  I've CC's original 2.02 heads and 1.94's that I have here.  Nothing about them changed in that regard. 

Not directly related to the post, but have you ever checked any 487X heads? :)

I went on that link, but I canít figure out 765-Z. The example that it shows is black bench seat...is there a spot which it breaks down what that code means. And sorry for asking a lot of questions but Iím really new to this. Back in the day(1992) I had a 68í that I just made into a hot rod. Now Iím taking a different approach, in trying to make the car as close as it was they way it came from factory. I guess when I was younger I wanted speed, now I want originality.

Thatís your interior seat info. Black custom buckets, no headrests.

Two different stampers - one was a roll stamper, the other a hand held gang stamper.

When I am at swap meets my rule of thumb is if the valves look like they touch they are 2.02,s. Any space they are not. They are kind of rare but you would think with all the guys going aluminum there would be some out there.

Old rule of thumb, use a dime. If it doesnít fit between the valves, then it has 2.02 intake 1.60 exhaust.

And yes, they are out there.

Body partial VINs were NOT done at the same station as the partial VINs on the engine and transmission.

From John's assembly article...

Body Bank: Receives the body shell from Fisher, assigns VIN and stamps the hidden VINs, separates them by major Chevrolet equipment and option content, and schedules them in "locked" sequence to the Chevrolet Trim Line; specs for each car are "broadcast" to subassembly and feeder lines throughout the plant.

Engine Line: Receives engines and transmissions from six different supplier plants and joins them, stamps VIN derivatives, fully dresses and wires/plumbs the engine, engine and trans oil fill, and sends the completed assembly to the Chassis Line.

Originality / Re: Eaton Posi Date
« on: April 25, 2018, 06:05:15 PM »
And thatís your choice. Whatever...

I mean either itís either original to the car or not.

Mine isnít - because it was originally a 3.73 open rear end.

There should be one down there. Often hard to read and sometimes canít be seen if itís in the car. But take a look.

Tough to evaluate. It definitely not all original. Someone scratched up the block deck pad in a poor attempt to duplicate broach marks. Some of the digits COULD and I say again COULD be original. Hard to say for sure with the head on the block. There MAY be some remnants of a partial VIN on the left side of the pad? Not sure.
