Where do i find the id number on a chevy block block


All engines are stamped with an engine ID code, consisting of assembly plant code, production date and suffix code. V8 codes are stamped on a pad just forward of the right side (passenger) cylinder head. 6 cylinder engines are stamped on the passenger side of the block behind the distributor.

I have a chevy 350 4 bolt main with suffix code ce4329 can anyone tell. Me what year, and horespower this engine came with.


I went google and typed in-- 350 chev engine suffix number ce 4329 and found a page chev-camero.com>chevy-camaro
listed is a ceu--1980--350--190 hp
these 4 bolt main blocks were sold here as bedford truck engines ( 5 ton trucks) as they had a slightly longer stroke which gave a better torque rating for heavy loads
They were popular as street engines, because they gave better power bands that could only be got by regrinding the crank to gain more cubic inches( longer stroke ) a 350 engine and adding special head gaskets for the piston protrusion above the block
Along with good cams , the 4 bolt main negated the need for expensive main modification to handle the extra power
anyway go to that site and navigate around and you may find the information you want

How do I tell the engine size of my 1978 chev truck


I picture would help greatly . Look at the valve covers . If it has 2 bolts on bottom and 2 bollts on top " 4 total " holding the valve cover on then it is a small block . Now if it has 4 bolts running along the bottom of the valve cover and 3 along the top " 7 total " then it is a Big Block .... Now that will help you pick the " family" of the engine but you still want to know the displacement " Cubic Inches " so here we go . As long as the engine block has never been " Decked " there will be a suffix code that can be decoded that will tell you what the engine came from , what the displacement is , as well as horse power ratings when new. The suffix code is located on a small square pad sitting directly in front of the passenger side head ' Usually hidden behind the alternator " Look at the pictures below to show you location ... At the end of the number there should be 3 letters , those are the suffix code . You can google the letters and see what turns up . A website known as nasty z28 has some really good info . You may need a flashlight , and some good cleaner to get a good look at the number down in behind there ........ Now if the truck has a big block , The number can be in one of two different locations , The first is the same as the small block . However i have also seen mid seventies big chevys that had a pad directly center , just above the timing cover and below the front of the intake that has the suffix code on it there ... If you are having trouble finding the code online and breaking down what it is , Just respond here with the numbers and letters and i will decode it for you .

Thanks for the help I just noticed my typo my casting numbers are 3858180 my apologies the engine is a 1965 327 I just cant seem to find what kind of car it was put in if anyone has any suggestions on were...


"You need to get the suffix code off the front pass side, on pad in front of the head. It will be a code thats 6, 7 or 8 digits long. The 1st one will be a letter, next 4 will ne bumbers and last 1, 2, or 3 will be letters.. Like say V0621KH. V0621 if the prefix which tells plant, mo. and day, KH would be the suffix code which tells engine size, HP, induction system, and car it was used in Your 3858180 is not a vin #, it's the casting number and no it does not decode as a corvette. The casting # does not tell what car it was installed in. Its just the size and year range. That # is added before the engine was ever thought of being built and installed. 3858180....327...1964-67...2 bolt main thats all the casting number decodes as."

Looking for a heater / a/c climate controle switch for a 89 ford tempo, all local stores wont carry and when im online it says the part never existed, so i guess i need the actual name and ford pa


Sometimes you have to bite the bullet and go to the Dealer. The Dealer has a book called an OSI book. Obsolete, Superceded, and Interchange are the way it is organized.

For used parts try Carparts.com. For a better understanding of Ford parts-they carry 2 types of part numbers. There is a Service number and an Engineering number.

The Service number is the over-the counter part number. The part numbers have a middle BASE number and the numbers and letters before the BASE number are Prefixes. The Prefix tells the Year and Model of vehicle. If a part is a D8AZ it is for a 1978 full size Ford, a D9 is for a 1979 full size. A D8MY is for a full size Mercury, D8LY is for a Lincoln.

These first numbers can be important, but if they interchange there are 2 things to know. A Ford part is usually cheaper than a Lincoln part and you can't go by the Prefix. That is why the BASE number is referenced. This is not to say the Suffix is not important, as the suffix can notate Engineering changes when looking at an Engineering number.

For instance, The first run part has an "A" Engineering suffix. Improvements could end with "B" or "AA". Perhaps the "A" suffix fits only the Mercury, but a modified "B" or "AA" could fit both Mercury and Ford sister cars.

This is why you need to know what each part of the Engineering number means.or have the Service number. Ford usually stamps or labels, or moulds only the engineering number on components.

I would like to identify a block # of 1m0525 5vp.


from what i find , the format of the number is incorrect. Engine ID Code Example: V0107CLJ i can find meanings of the "m0525" but nothing on the first 1. and the suffix code is 3 letters. so from what i worked out, the "m" would be from the mexico plant. and the "0525" would be the engine build date, may 25th, no year stamp. the "5vp" is what's got me. there's only 4 suffix codes i found that start with numbers and none are 5vp. the closest i found on just the "vp" without the "5" would be a "vr" listed as a 350 1969 with 4 barrel carb out of a c-20 or c-30. the closest i could find for "5vp" would be "suf" and there were 2. both listed as 305's 1984. one out of a monte carlo and one out of a firebird.
