: I get your point but the gentleman who made the statement above ( that "010" blocks were only used for 350's) is also asserting that the books that show "010" blocks as possible for 302's are in error and that few, if any, 302s were built (during production) using the "010" block. Frankly I think it's a BS statement. It would seem that pretty much after April of '69 the "010" is GM's go to block for 4" bore small blocks so it would follow that any Z's built after April would most likely have an "010" block. I'm just looking for something to support my position other than the aforementioned books (the content of which he has already discounted).
I know someone is probably asking why I care - well, being right has its merits
but really it's a matter of whether or not to let misinformation stand. If it is left to stand then it has the very real possibility of becoming "fact" and we have plenty of misinformation that becomes "fact" in this hobby as it is.
