    The nickle thing is more of a myth than anything else. Some years back we had a member on this site that worked at a Chevy engine casting plant. He stated that the 010 and 020 numbers cast on the blocks were only for identification of the molds used in casting.
    I believe an actual Chevy employee who made the blocks over all the myths floating around.
