1) Does anyone know where the exchanged OEM (warranty) block went from the dealership?  Did it get rebuilt and resold, studied for causes, thrown away???

Engine replacements under warranty required authorization from the Zone Office, and the procedure required that the engine removed from the car be rendered unusable and scrapped after inspection by the Zone field rep.

Rendered - meaning by sledge hammer if necessary, I've heard... Is this true from you experiences John?

Did owners ever get the blocks back if they knew parts guys well enough?

Yes, although the field rep probably couldn't be present to verify it in every instance - they had a lot of territory to cover.

Anything's possible, but who'd bother to reclaim a broken block? Back in the day, it was just another block - nobody cared about casting numbers, dates, pad stamps VIN stamps, and all the other stuff we obsess about today.

Most all the warranty parts were given only a cursory inspection and that was only if the service rep was not on good terms with the parts manager. If they were friendly and not suspicious of any wrong doing they didn't even bother to check the warranty parts. I personally never saw a rep destroy a warranty part.

Many times mechanics and parts guys kind of kept what they thought was useable and often took it home. I can tell you for a fact that a lot of warranty items were not bad because most of the mechanics were not trained very well and replaced a lot of good parts. In the case of an obvious failure such as a short block assembly they often went to the recycler for beer money.

Who would have imagined that any of this stuff would be future collectibles.
