This was a topic somewhat related but I split it off into its own thread.

Everyone needs to read what those certification reports say, not just look at the certificate. The reports are normally a few pages.

Might not have had the original 302 in it. To me they sound best with the off road cam, but even the stock cam has some "lope" to it and should be recognizable. :)

Depends on how fast you want to sell them. You could start off with a high buy it now and let people submit offers. That would test the waters. Good luck. :)

Not super rare but desirable and valuable.

I am not really sure on price. Depends on how bad somebody needs them.

Is your tag stamped?

The link above has some good pics.

Pretty sure I see 9N708574 - but the last number could be a 1.  Just looks more like a 4 to me.

These days cross rams are for impressing car show attendees..  not for driving..  :)
You need to ride in mine! Idles all day long at 800 rpm but the original short block is now 383 cu. in. with solid roller. Granted they can be a bear but with some carb tricks etc. from a few professionals they can be just fine.

383? Isn't that cheating just a bit? :)

Easier to do with more cubic inches. My father used to run two 750s and a tunnel ram on the big blocks in his jet boats. Yes they would idle fine, but It was not easy to get to them to that point. We had to though. The marina where we typically launched was a no wake zone. ;)

The SBC block with casting number ending in "512" was mainly used for service engines (think CE) but has been seen in some limited use in production vehicles.

So yes, which "512" block do you have?

Let's not throw people under the bus so fast. :)

If you have specific questions on the tag - post a photo.

Is the block the correct one for your car? Does the partial VIN match your VIN?

Post a pic of that too if you can.

Also I may split this out into a separate thread.

I am not where I can look it up right now. I will respond this evening unless someone answers before that.

From memory, yes it is somewhat bluish.

Until then, read this.

Do I see something stamped right of the DZ?

Can you post a larger pic of the pad and the partial VIN stamp area?
