engine pad #

I have pulled the engine out of my 69 chevelle to replace the freeze plugs and thought I'd check the numbers. the casting # is 3855961 which could be a late sixties 396 but the engine code has me stumped. To422edh the engine vin# 6a169746. Sisnct this does not match the car vin I'm assuming it is a replacement engine but what? Can any body help?
I have searching the threads and archives here for two days and gone to every link I could find but I don't find EDH any where.

Motor is a 66 396-325 HP Man-Trans. The H at the end of the ED Stands for Holley Equipped.

Re: engine pad #

Thank you very much, this is my first chevelle and big block and I have alot to learn. I've had small block vettes for years but they are just to expensive now.

Re: engine pad #

One thing you might want to know for the future if you ever need to replace the camshaft, 65/66 396 engines required a groove on the rear cam journal and rear cam bearing - much like the early 265/283 Chevys. Most 'off-the-shelf' cams for the 396 don't have this groove. In fact, most mfgs list their cams from 1967 and up because of this. Just something you might want to be aware of, don't order a camshaft for a 1969 Chevelle.
