Are you saving the photos as well?  If not I would suggest you hyperlink them to a cell and have a dedicated folder that you put them.  I have a system down now that I do all my spreadsheets with. I also have each column filtered for sorting.

Contact me if you have a 68 L78/L89 Camaro to add it to my database.

Thanks Darrell, that's a better picture.
I have kept reference pictures of the pad stamps where the poster included them, but haven't linked to them in the spreadsheet yet, until I figure out how to host and share it. Ideally it would be accessible for members to add their own data, but there would have to be some editing limitations to maintain the data......
There is a filter on each column, you can see the drop-downs in the header row on that screenshot.

Unfortunately due to several factors I wasn't able to check the 69 350 CE block last weekend that I have in storage. Too many other things were going on. But I will check it when I can and report back.

Finally had a chance to check,

It's a 3959512 Flint block, cast A 7 9 and stamped CE9A35702, with 02 9 V stamped on the starter mounting area.

Sorry Bryon, auto-correct strikes again with yet another typo.......

I don't think I ever sent you these pics. Purchased my CE bare block in 4/74. 3970010, B 12 4, CE3A973  96. Stamp isn't the best.

Thanks Jim! Definitely had your data in the spreadsheet, but the photos are a great addition. That really does seem an anomaly, to have 2 blocks cast in 1974 but stamped for the '73 model year..... perhaps assembled same day, and there was an issue with setting up the gang stamp?

Anyone know if Flint Engine assembly ran 7 days, night and day?

Flint V-8 normally ran two 9-hour Assembly shifts, 5 days a week, plus two overtime shifts every other Saturday. Every day Assembly ran two shifts, Machining ran three 8-hour shifts.

In Assembly, Line #1 ran at 170 per hour, and Line #2 ran at 130 per hour; the combined output (300 per hour, one engine every 12 seconds) generated about 2700 engines per day. Flint V-8 didn't operate on Sundays.

Great info John. Could you please clarify if the 2 shift lines were concurrent, operating on the same start/end times? I guess I just assumed 2 shifts at the engine assembly plant meant a day and a night shift, not 2 day shifts.

Both lines operated at the same time.
