A few questions that have been on my mind about warranty engines: 1) If a number, like CE0707, (just a random example) were deciphered, would that be the 707th warranty engine total for year 70  to include all warranty engines or specifically just that particular type, like the 707th L78 or DZ depending on which block it is stamped on? 2) A 70 engine could be in a 69 car, right, it was still under warranty? 3) would that CE be a short block only or long block or did CE include both?

1.  All warranty engines from that engine plant, not a specific engine.
2.  Yes.  In 1969 I believe the warranty was 5 years or 50,000 miles.
3.  Quote from link below "This numbering system applies to service engine assemblies, partial engines, fitted cylinder cases, cylinder cases".

See this link.

Thanks, I should have re-read that before I posted. I guess I knew, but the old cranium is not hitting on all 8 these days, I guess.

If I recall correctly, the reason for the CE numbered engines was to ensure that there was a *unique* identifier on the engine, to meet one or more state's requirements, thus the number is unique within all chevrolet engines.   Again, if I recall correctly, Tonawonda was assigned a particular sequence of numbers, and Flint a particular sequence of numbers, so that you could not have two different engines with the same identifier code.

Man they must have went through a lot of them. My 69 big block is CE974163 dated June 11 1969. I guess that would say over 24,000 CE,s by June.

Remember, the sequence started with production at the beginning of the model year, not the calendar year.  So by June, you are getting close to the end of the model year.  And that was for all CE engines from that plant.
