Where are what?
I think he is looking for an SBC on squeeze (NOS). I think they still get impressed with nitrous over there at Hot Rod magazine. that may be a good place to look.
just do a google search
squirt, squirt, squirt,........spuee, spuee, spueeeeeeeeee....how's that.. ;o)
Fast and furious 1-5 is a pretty good "nos" reference

Do you think that he is wondering what sbc(small block chev) and nos(new old stock) mean when we just use abbreviations? He is from Ireland, and may not be familiar with our shortcuts.
Your hotrod.ie account is suspended
NoS should have plenty of info on their site
where are the engine numbers located on a 70s corvette block.SBC
Wow - the guesses We had
nitrous or nos
New old stock or nos
But not numbers ?
Not another corvette block How many did thay make?
All right, it's popcorn time again.
Did GM make any other kind??
Back before NOS had new meanings, nos. meant numbers, no. was number.
It's an old guy thing that I still remember
If you mean a New Old Stock sbc, I have a NOS 283 block I'm building for my Cabriolet, but then once I crank it up.......
Now, That is funny !!!!! LOL
back #cast on block large GM 85 smaller 3978018
front no numbers on pad 1 3/4 x 1 inch.did replacement blocks come without nos.
Way da hell more than they ever made Corvettes.
Nunatax the first thing you need to know when trying to ID a sbc is
http://www.nastyz28.com/sbchevy/sblock.php They have done a good job on rounding up casting and suffix numbers.
Don't be too shocked if that "Corvette" engine started life in a 77 Chevy van though.
3978018 does not show on a block casting number list for a SBC.
3970010 is a small/big journal block number that was used in everything.
rick you the man in daylight i would settle for3970010.
tons of em ,everywhere ya look
Could be a 4 bolt main 350 but no bets on that you need the letter code off the right front block pad to know what it came out of .
The numbers are located on the bell on the driver's side. All small block chevies have the numbers in the same place. The stamped numbers are located on a flat pad on the front of the engine.
Beno don't waste your time with this guy, he has selective eye sight. I posted all this info yesterday around the 4th or 5th post, and even a another post and picture of the pads. He was logged on and reading the thread and totally ignored the post's.
does not bother me.it came from a vette doner,has 4 block main.flat top pistons, edelbrockheads, cam, manifold ,barry grant carb,ran well the last time i drove it
traditions racing i didnt ignore your posts i was in the process of replying to them i seem to have deleted your posts,didnt mean to.without your user name i couldnt reply.fuck it i didnt want to PO you guys.there are no numbers on the block on the passenger side front.i have a neighbour with a 74 vette.i cant call to him at the moment he is away on business.thats the only sbc nearby.
its a 4 bolt viewed it before it was re - assembled
What a bunch of girls! Drama! What was this thread about again?
I thought it stood for Never On Sunday.
