i got this block sittin in my garage and i dont know what it came out of or the year or anything. the casting numbers on the back of the block are 3970010. the ones on the front are v0829TJC. can you help me out?
The 010 that is supposedly the sign of a high nickel block is not the casting number with the 010 but actually a number cast into the block behind the timing chain. Other blocks have different #s such as 020 etc. Still not sure about whether its factual or not but I have had several 3970010 blocks with different #s behind the timing chain and some were 010 some were not. Hope this helps.
