Trouble decoding my engines engine code ID on the block. It reads: V0207CLA. The VIN# reads 14S417756. The Cast# is 3970010.
My cars in window VIN# does not match. My car is a 1971, the block should be a 1974 by the 14 in the block VIN.
I've checked this site, wise geeks,nova resources,Z28,wiki leaks,Google ect.
Best I come up with is Flint, 1974, 350, for a Vette. Please advise as I'm going to make it a 383 stroker. Thanks:confused:

It is a Flint block. The 010 block is an excellent block for building. It was used from 69-82. My 69 Z28 has it and I had a 79 L82 Corvette with it.

Because by 1974 EPA regulations and gas issues dropped the HP ratings and compression ratios. But if its been messed with, 1974 HP ratings mean nothing.

Nashcar

Nashcar. With a S on the block VIN, wouldn't that make it a St Louis plant?
If so, it would definitely be a Corvette engine, since that is where they are made? Plus the CLA engine code suffix. I'm trying to determine if it is a 4 bolt main. I am led to believe it is.......

A Ha. A L48 is a 4 bolt. So good to finally know. That will definitely help with it being made into a Stroker.
