    Are those the cast numbers? does it have a stamped number on the block?

    did they ever sell Oldsmobiles in Canada?
     
  3. Chad, I'm around the corner from you in Kitchener.

    Not sure on the later 371s and 394s, as I into the 303's and 324's but here's a bump. @Paul or @GOATROPER02 should be able to help you out.

    looks like a '63 394 block
    were the #16 heads bolted to that block?
    didn't know that was possible with the push rod spacing..
