ce suffix help
« on: December 30, 2012, 06:08:28 PM »
I've been silently using this site for many years and its a great resource with a ton of knowledge. Thank you all ! I have a question that doesn't appear to have been asked. My CE block has additional information on the pad and maybe someone can help with the info. Its out of my 68 camaro that had been raced.The crank and heads are original to the car. RS SS 396 (325hp)? no paper. In addition to the pad the started pad has what appears to be a 41 and a B(not together) If I am successfull in posting the pad I'll try the starter pad

Here's a previous discussion on this topic.

Worthy of note: CE is not an acronym for counter exchange or crate engine.

Might be the previous owner's name when it went to the machine shop?

Rick I can't say. There is a full lower circle and what may be the start of a line heading up to begin a six but I couldn't say for sure.
