Hello, I have a January, 26 1970(A 26 70) date coded 3969854 402 block with a T0819CLB(august,19th) code on the front pad w/11S105170 also on pad. Heads are 3993820 date coded June,28 1970(F 28 70). Was this block just sitting arond for 8 months before use? The aug, 19th date and the 105170(last 6 of VIN?) shows a very early 71 model, correct? Just wondering if anyone else has seen this large of a span between casting date and actual production use? Thanks.
