Hi All,

How can i date my 305 chevy and the TH350 gearbox I have? I know it will be off the engine number (any clues where that is?) but where is the date stamp/gearbox number so I can identify that aswell? I was told it was from a Camaro but the guy wasn't too sure. All help appreciated.

Cheers,

Stu.

302 is the same bore as 350 just a shorter stroke.

The 2 numbers I can see on the block with the exception of the 5.0lg, are 1408851 and A216, not sure which is the date stamp though. I haven't seen the one on the gearbox.

Cheers,

Just double checked, even wrote it on the back of my hand. It is 14088551, finger trouble again.

Does this mean it is a smog motor(?) If so what does that mean? Can I find out the output of the motor aswell?

Cheers,

Stu.
