Curious about the block pad....I thought those were masked to not hide the stamping with paint or is that only when the VIN is on the pad?

I suspect the engine pad got that paint after it left the vehicle assembly plant.

Somewhere in it's life somebody has been inside the engine. It was still standard but has one replacement piston & non GM bearings. Also, the cam bearings were installed incorrectly. Sadly, nothing remained standard...Joe

Thanks for posting that, it has what I wanted to see.  Were you able to tell the date code at the front center underside (bottom center if looking at the pic shown).

Date code on the lid was T31.....Joe
