    Block stamp is 3970014 (site says from a 70 - 73) 350 Camaro.
    However the date stamp is a A 15 78

    So that cant be right. I cant find a block number in 78 to match.
    Any help. See pics.
    2 bolt or 4?

    My heads are from a 73 Camaro.
    I did some looking on our site and in 78 the 350 was mated to a T-10. Which mine is.

    The 3970014 block was made from 1969 through 1979, so it can turn up in any of those years. The suffix code stamped on the pad on the front will tell you more about what vehicle it originally came on.
