i just got a 460 i was told it is a 1979 i want to make sure. i found the number were the starter goes.It is a d1ve-6015-a2b
The D1VE engineeringrevision blocks were used in productoinfrom 1971-1978 only. They are itnernal balance engines.
Beginning in the 1979 model year, the engine became externally balanced and used a D9TE cylinder block.
It might be possible (very slim chance) that yours is a very, very early 1979 model engine (the D1VE blocks are capable of accomodating the later model external balaced rotating assmblies). Is it externally balanced or internally balanced?
