I decided to decode the numbers you posted just for fun, the casting number on the back 3970010 automatically means its a 350. The k1127CKL decoded to K= St. Catherines, Ontario, 11= Nov, 27= 27th, CKL= 350, with automatic tranny, but says it came in B,F, and A bodies. I decoded mine and it points to exactly what it came in, my 79 caprice. Mine was also made on the same month, day, and assembly plant in St. Catherines. But my code was K1127DRA where the DRA means 1979, 350, 4 barrel, automatic, 170hp, full size application.
Can you take a pic of the stamped numbers on the front pad and post it so i can see exactly what you have?
