Nope, one can definitely not paint phosphate. That answers it, thanks.

Originality / Hood Latch Assembly and Spring

I was reading the thread (above). To be sure, is the entire hood latch assembly, top and bottom painted a dark gray phosphate and just the spring itself is gloss black?

Thanks, Steve

Well Steve, you are going to be pissed, but the block is a 3956618, casting date of L 18 8 (Dec 18 1968), deck stamp V0113HA VIN from a 69 Camaro by oil filter, BUT deck stamp has been altered 1 changed to a 4, so the stamp now reads V0413HA.   It would have been perfect for your car. 

Kevin: Well that isn't great news is it. I appreciate you checking for me anyway. Thanks.

Steve -

I disagree, if your car was built at Norwood, it's possible to make your engine pad "numbers matching" if you do your homework, take your time and find a donor block from another Camaro...



Paul,

I guess where I'm missing it is aren't the sequential numbers part of what is stamped? Therefore, the engine pad would have the partial VIN matching the VIN tag on the dash??? If it makes any difference, my car was built in L.A.

Wow, I'm overwhelmed by all the help! Thanks!!!

What is meant by trends? Because the block that sixt9x33rs refers to on TC seems like a good match. Am I right in my thinking that as long as the casting numbers and casting date is correct, the deck stamp is not relevant since it won't be matching anyway? In other words, a 3956618 could have come out of other Chevrolet models, not just the Camaro.

Paul: I did see the engine on ebay, thanks. I think the date works because it's within 90 days of the build of my car (3rd week of January). I'm also looking on Craigslist and asking around. It does seem crazy to sell a totally matching numbers motor!

Thanks for the help. How important is it to find the suffix code HA? Or could I purchase an early block with the 618 casting number that was out of a different Chevrolet and hence a diffrent suffix code?

The casting numbers on mine are the same as Loren's, except the casting dates are 305, and on the other, 292.

What was the original color of the calipers?

Decoding/Numbers / Coorect engine block for 1969 SS350
« on: October 06, 2009, 08:50:49 PM »
My 69 SS350 was built in January 1969. According to CRG, there are 4 blocks used for the 350 that year: 3932386; 3932388; 3956618; 3970010. However, the second and fourth blocks listed were used in mid year and late year, respectively. Am I correct then in looking for either a 3932386 or a 3956618 block for my car? And where besides ebay does one look for a correct block? Thanks.

Okay, thanks. What's the difference in the two as far as what they were built to do?
