no convert and unfortunately dont have the car this was in a 69SS chevelle i bought ... if it is from the rebuilder they went to a hell of alot of problems to drill the block just to install this little tag when they could've used a bolt on the w-pump

That casting # was used in 65-66 396 and in 66 for the 427. What are the numbers on the block in front of the pas side head? Could be that you could bore that thing pretty big.

I wouldn't rule out a rebuild. If the bore's oversize you probably have your answer. I've seen brass plates with rebuilder info as late as 77. I don't think they'd be all that difficult to attach. They were pretty common back then. Unusual to see that it has so little info though. Maybe it's just the job number?
