Re: Locate/Decode Casting Numbers on a 427 Side-Oiler

Sorry to drum up old issues (hehe) but could this possibly be a marine
or service block? Any way to definitely tell?

Thanks,

Jason

Re: Locate/Decode Casting Numbers on a 427 Side-Oiler


A coworker said that he suspects it's either a marine or service block.
He stated that some blocks of that type were 'finned' and that certain
machining took place. He pointed out the following pics to me on my
site. Any thoughts??? Any online documentation on marine/service
427s?


The fins on this picture:

And seen again here:

As well as the machined edge here (located in view as a vertical
speckled edge directly below the motor mount, and just to the right of
one of the cross-bolts):
