hi guys and girls. my neighbor has a 396 he wants to sell, the casting number is 3969854 and it codes out to be a '69 396 with 2 or 4 bolt mains. it came out of a 70 chevelle. i'd like to get the front pad numbers decoded. they are:
T1003TBG then to the right and a little lower is:
348324. any info would be appreciated.
thanks,
chris
