Dave, What Gary said. I remember reading in a HOT ROD mag back in the early 70's that had an article in it about prepping a block for faster oil flow back to the pan and those 4 drain back corners were smoothed out and screens were epoxied in to catch debris. If I remember correctly there was something about smoothing out the valley walls all they way around too. As a matter of fact the 350 LT1 spec engine in my Z right now has had the valley smoothed out. I'm assuming done by the previous owner.

yea, seem my share of motors with this done but never from the factory, seller believes motor my have been through the hands of Al Bartz or Traco at some point in its history, but since its been apart and has different heads and intake, i think its a moot point


i did register and sent a PM thanks for the help Gary

Thanks
Dave

It's probably 9N618420. That fits the date.

Thanks for your help Kurt,

really hard to read as it seems stamp runs off side of block

after closer inspection looks like first number is a 6 not a 5 as previously posted, would it be possible for a mod to change title? new here and dont know who the mods are. 

Thanks
Dave

Hey Gary,

Mine did too, but holes were filled in when z was last repainted.

Dave,
for 'pure enjoyment' of your car, your plan is best...  Smiley
but you're going to enjoy driving it so much, you'd better build up your gasoline fund..  Smiley

Thank you Gary, thats the plan

Block is 4 days after mine. Mine has an unusual date cast of a109. It's a 661 also. My off-road  am has the 141 stamp also

thanks Bill

yea, when you get guys hoarding DZ parts, and guys using DZ parts on there clones   Roll Eyes, it drives the parts for sale through the roof.

I think I'm gonna build a vintage style TA car VS original date correct&numbers car, that way i dont have to worry about date correct $$$$$ parts, just gonna try to keep as visually correct as possible.

i contacted minilite wheels and i can get a set of wheels for what your getting ready to pay for an alternator.  

sorry if i offended the purist, guess im just another hoarder with some DZ parts Wink

Hey Gary,

just been looking for something closer to my build date, seller asked me to make him an offer, i did, not sure if he will accept, so your not off the hook yet, lol sorry for dragging this on.

i also found another motor built two weeks before my car.

right now waiting on the above motor, it might have some interesting history, i'll share after purchase or i pass.

was told uship is very reasonable and easy.

Thanks
Dave

will work on getting more pics of vin, but think i will move forward with purchase, thanks guys
43  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: DZ Stamp on: May 21, 2013, 04:08:13 PM
There's no VIN stamp on the machined top of the block?   but by that date *(March 11)... might there be one on the cast surface above the oil filter?   THOSE are extremely difficult to see presence of, much less to read...

on the front pad the pic i have i can see about 80 of pad, i dont think theres enough room left on what visible for a vin, in the middle pic of reply #3 is the cast surface above oil filter, the original picture is much better than the resized one posted here but even when zoomed in as much as possible there seems to be zero evidence of any mark/stamp
44  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: DZ Stamp on: May 21, 2013, 01:14:09 PM
also included is what i believe is a 140 cam from my research on here and on team camaro
45  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: DZ Stamp on: May 21, 2013, 01:09:31 PM
casting date is a little hard to read, but think is c 6 9, original is easier to read when zoomed
