Engine pad - The second character in the second portion looks like a T but it is actually a capital I which was interchangeable with a 1.  I couldn't upload a high engh quality pic to show where you could actually see the bottom of the I so it looks like a T in this pic.

Simple enough the block is a restamp.

Stay out of this thread please, you apparently have zero constructive advice to offer.
Thank you.

EJ,

How much trouble would it be to remove the paint from the engine pad & post another pic?

I have never seen a large journal 350 either.  I don't think they exist, and if they did as an experimental thing, it probably would have been right at the beginning of production - in September.  I wish I was closer to Orlando.

I can do that tomorrow, shouldn't be much of a big deal.  Is there something in particular that I should be looking for or trying to make sure is visible?

Getting the photo down to 150kb really makes it lose a lot of resolution but I do know for 100% that the block shows VI108MS which was confusing at first but I read that the capital letter I and the number one were used interchangeably on engine stamps it confirmed to me what I was seeing on my engine to be correct.

BC,
Mine has small journals, I assume that is what you meant.

Not sure I guess I need to get some photos of those casting numbers also.  I will look at them tomorrow and report back.  I will try to get pics if I can with the engine installed.

You only mention the main journals as being the smaller size.  How about the rod Journals?  Are they they the smaller size also?

Also I checked my July issue of the 1969 GM parts manual and there is only one part number for a 1967 & 1968 350ci crankshaft.  So if they ever did make a crankshaft with a small journal they never expected to replace it....they would have to replace the whole short block instead.

As to the engine pad.....did you repaint the pad when you rebuilt the engine?   The original engine pads from the factory were never painted.
