Engine ID

Hi, can anybody shed some light on this engine? It is in my 68 ss396. Code that I can see doesn't match any GM parts.

Re: Engine ID

Get these numbers: 1967-69 Camaro Drivetrain Decoding and we can help. Block casting number, block casting date, and assembly code.

Yeah ,it's the firing order of the cylinders cast into the intake manifold.
Look on the block where it shows"engine id number/vin code" as shown.
