Response to New member with a FE block question.


hate to start things off on a bad note but the date code you gave really makes that too early for a CJ. all of the early CJ blocks seem to have the big C on the back and the reinforced ribsand there are very very few blocks cast before 12/67. the early blocks do have the C7ME casting number but so do standard 428 blocks. since the block does not have a C or an A on teh back i would be suspicious and get it sonic tested to make sure you didn't buy a 390 that has been bored well beyond its limits. unfortunately it used to be common and they turn up all too often. hawkrod
