I just picked up a new toy crawler, another project.... and I've heard (or maybe drempt) that there are websites that tell you the production year and possibly the car it came out of? The engine is a Chevy 327... and I'm looking at a vortec 350 as well.

Thanks in advance for any help on this.

there should be a casting numer on one side of it, get that number. then look up gm casting number on google and you shoud find it. it will tell you when it was manufactured, and what it came out of
