There's a good note describing the number scheme used by Kelsey Hayes somewhere.. maybe someone here has it handy and will post it?    I think I'm recalling correctly that the '1' after the K..  is the code for Chevrolet.. so maybe it's a '2' for Buick?  or ??   Smiley

you've gotta be patient, Capt...  Smiley

and I owe you a Thanks..  Smiley ...  I was at the Autofest in Nashville last Saturday, and each time I saw small block '69 heads, I stopped and inquired about the numbers.. (thinking of your 041!)...  well, I didn't find your head, BUT..  in my search, I accidentally came across a matched set of 186 heads which are *perfect* for replacing the heads I sold off my Z28 back in the seventies!!   .. Now I'm just hoping they turn out to be good and rebuildable.. Smiley
I've been looking for good dates for 186 so long, I'd given up and *settled* on some not quite as good, and I probably wouldn't have bothered checking numbers on the heads had I not been thinking about your need for an 041..

We dug out some original GM literature a few years ago, which addressed the way the CE numbers were assigned... I just have to recall where I stored it.   I *think* I remember that the letters were just another trip thru the numbers they allotted..  ie..  no letter, then A, then B...   ?  but I might be mis-remembering this.

That sounds like a good value for that engine block.... if all stated is true....
2182  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69' 302 CE numbers on: January 21, 2013, 10:04:42 AM
This is an old post I'm responding to, but I was searching for something and came across it...  Smiley

'I suspect that 16347 number stamped into the heads and block represent a 'customer number' from a machine shop doing work on the engine.'

I found interest in the CE9B46015 (date I 27 9) block as well, as I own a '69 Corvette unrestored original (40Kmiles) which got it's engine replaced under warranty within it's first few weeks of life.   It's a August 7, 1969 car with the CE engine notated:   CE9B44296 (date I 18 9), which is 9 days and 1719 CE blocks earlier.   

That's seems to be a LOT of CE replacement engines in only a bit over a week!

I've noticed some similar correllations in the past, but have seen nothing documented about it..

I doubt there's an 'untouched' Z28 302 engine in existence...   Smiley

2187  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: 69' Z28 on eBay good deal, real deal?? Engine stamp funny on: January 18, 2013, 12:44:40 AM
The engine stamp (iin the Photo) almost looks as if it were *inked* rather than stamped..  Smiley
2188  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: X codes on non RS cars. on: January 18, 2013, 12:43:23 AM
Based on the above info, ONLY the X11, X22, and X33 could be a RS...  based on the fact that all RS have Style Trim...
X44, X55, X66, X77 could NOT be or have RS option, since they do not include style trim.
