Did not some CE blocks show the original suffix code and date of the blown engine if'n you flipped the engine over and had a peek at the starter pad??
Have a '70 replacement 9854 block for an "ET" suffix Chevelle that is stamped in this above area.

The stamping on the starter pad on many (not all) "CE" blocks only indicates the engine plant and a date; there is no suffix information. The engine plant had no clue what car the block was for.

"Did not some CE blocks show the original suffix code and date of the blown engine"...............there are several 1970 coded CRR auto trans Ls6 blocks out there dated into the early 70s.

Good morning John!!  Got one here that is stamped maybe, by a service garage showing the suffix code "ET"  and a partial date on the starter pad.  Can put up the pics if you'd like to peruse.

John,
Were "left over" engine assemblies from production "recycled back to service replacement complete engine assemblies" after production ended?

That's a 1970-manufactured Tonawanda "CE" 402 block, with the pad stamp from the failed engine added (crudely) by the installer; the stamp on the starter pad is a Julian date code.

John,

Normally, any "leftover" production engine assemblies were returned to the engine plants to be converted to the next model year's specs, then returned to the assembly plants for production use. Complete engine assemblies (intake to pan) were only available while those engines were in active production, and weren't shown in the parts books. Besides just component parts, normally the only engines listed in the parts books were short blocks ("partial engines") and fitted blocks (just the block, pistons and rings).
