Block ID
« on: October 26, 2022, 10:49:30 PM »
I know it can get very difficult to identify some blocks. I am trying to figure this one out.

  Block Casting #3892657
  Block Date K116 - Jan 11th, 1966?
  Front Pad Stamp V1122KM Flint, November 22nd?
  Looks like it decodes out as 1 of 3 blocks.

  1967   3892657   302   290   290   2   Z-28, small journal
  1967   3892657   327   210   350   2   car & truck
  1967   3892657   350   295   295   2   Camaro

 Is it the Z/28 block because of the " V" for Flint High Performance Engine Building Plant? Or could it be the 295 HP 350? Danny

I read it as a 1967 block cast on November 11, 1966 and assembled at the Flint V8 plant on November 22nd.
I don't recognize the "KM" application code. If it was MK rather than KM it would be a 275hp engine for a manual transmission car.
For it to be a Z-28 block it needs to be stamped either MO or MP in place of the KM. It would also have the cars partial vin stamped on the pad. I'm also pretty sure no Z-28 engines were assembled before December 1966.


In order for the block to be a 295 hp 350 the KM on the Front Pad would have to be a MS, MT, MU or MV. The partial vin would also be stamped on the pad.

I just had a look at Chevrolet by the Numbers and it states the same information as rszmit posted.
