    Post  1971Z28RS on Tue Aug 25, 2015 9:11 pm

    Hello all
    New to this forum

    It is a Canadian motor made in St Catherines

    St. Catharines = k
    11-27 - Nov 27



    1- Chevy
    3- 1973


    Vin 137040



    Here is the back casting numbers

    3970010

    Followed by - k 10


    On the front pad it is stamped

    131137040 Followed by K 1 1 27 CKL  


    A10
    D N

    Welcome to the forum, wasnt quite sure if you had a question with this post or not, but decided to reply anyways. Seems like you decoded it pretty well, but the malibu and chevelle are A bodies.

    Unfortunately with that number i cant come up with anything only because its the last 6 digits and that was just the sequence number of the car vin, since its a '73 the car would have had a 13 digit vin, but i dont think youll know for sure exactly what car it came out unless someone out there can decode it further, other than decoding the date, place, and time of manufacture of the block itself which is what you've done already

    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?

    Once you get to 10 posts your rank will change and you will get one star, see if it changes when that happens, i dont know why its doing that since all the permissions as a "newbie" are the same. But try it out.
