Hey Steve, I can't comment on the stamp but shouldn't there be a pipe plug above the timing cover?

That's a dead giveaway, and the "3" looks odd

There have been a few 388 (Tonawanda) cast blocks, assembled in Flint for Z28 application(DZ). Not sure why or how this happened. I'm not comfortable with the stamping IMO.

Thought I read somewhere that some Tonawanda blocks were shipped to Flint for assembly due to a production crunch at Flint during the 69 production year, but I cannot confirm or recall where I read that.

Wow, cast the day before it was assembled? Would that normal for a DZ? There's a couple things I don't like about it, but I'm not a stamp expert so I'll leave it alone.

Sounds normal then. My 396 was cast 7/23 for an 7/28 build. I was actually thinking about my car build date when I originally posted which was 8/22. That's why I was so surprised at first. Thanks for the reply.

I read that also. It was someone who has a Numbers and docs. 69 with a Tonawanda block. Swears by it.
