Would appreciate your opinion on what date should be on the water pump of a January 69 built car. Thanks!

The water pump casting date must precede the stamped engine assembly date; could be as little as a few days, up to a month or two.

Terry, J 3 8 is the block casting date.  John is talking about the engine assembly date which is stamped on the engine pad.

The location of the engine assembly date stamp is shown in this link...    http://www.camaros.org/drivetrain.shtml#PadStamps
