First one 3914660. TO 626 HI
Second one 3858180. TI 008 HCH
I BELIEVE BOTH ARE 327'S
Looks like it's out of a truck.
Ok, i posted 2 different engines one is a early small journal. Second large journal motor
3914660 is a 1968 327. The HI code is for a full size car with 327/250hp with manual tranny.
3858180 is a 327 block used in 1965 and 1966. The HCH code was used in 1966 on full size cars with 327/275hp with Powerglide and Holley carb.
First of all. thank you for the response
Is there any value in these engines? both are rotating assemblies the 1965-66 is a fresh .060 bore. - .010 rods and mains with rods&steel crank..
The 68 is standard bore mostly complete less heads
I don't have any idea what people would pay for an engine like those, but a good old 327 is a great running engine for an old car. The right person likely wants one.
HI Gary S I know this is 8 months old and may be a stretch but Is it possible to get the location all the information was pulled from I'm working on several different things and would like to have that if at all possible at my fingertips
The best source for this information is the books that Alan Colvin put into print a few years ago. You want his Chevrolet by the Numbers 1965-1969
and his Chevrolet by the Numbers 1970-75 books
He also put out another one, Chevrolet by the Numbers 1960-64
With these books you can decode just about every important part in Chevys from 1960-1975.
Thanks for the information
