I picked up a couple of 350 blocks from a friend today, who owns a junkyard. The one block is a 1970, 010 block, and nothing anywhere on the pad. No #'s or letters, nothing by the oil filter, nothing by the starter. He said it came out of a 4 speed Nova, with double hump heads, and 12 bolt. The car is long gone, and I only got the block, and a std/std. cast 2442 crank. The other is a 1971, 010 block, he says came out of, to quote him, " An old 71 or 72 Z Camaro , that was T-boned. " He only had the bare block left, and it is a 4 bolt main, with windage tray, stand off studs, and 3412 main caps. Neither have any marking anywhere, except but both block casting dates. They were cast L-16-9, and L-3-1. I thought it was weird getting one with no stamps or codes, but 2, and from the same junkyard. They both still have the factory broach marks also, so I know they haven't been decked. I had another block that was a CE code, and these have no codes or stampings like that block did. But that one was cracked, between freeze plugs, so I picked these up. These are weird. Anyone seen something like this before?
