    I need help decoding what I was told is a Chevy 283 Engine. I don't have the block casting number but here is what is on the engine pass side head.

    CE9B382 1 2

    The stamping of CE9B382 is all the same size and font, also the "B" is a "B" and the "8" is an "eight".

    The "1" space "2" is a diff font and a bolder stamp

    CE indicates that is a replacement engine from Chevy. These were usually engines replaced under warranty. The 9 indicates it was installed in 1969.
