Question 6 cyl date code:

While taking out my distributor last night, I noticed (what I think is) the date code for my 6-banger, stamped on the pad under the distributor.

I think I know what it says: but confused by the "F" suffix - any clues?

Code: F 6327B.

I'm getting that the engine was built 2/27/63 - but not 100% sure.

Mitch.

Perhaps this belongs in the Tag Decoding forum ???

The date code is cast into the part along with the casting number. The stamped numbers you found on the identification pad are the application code and sequential number assigned to the motor for quality control. I do not have a lot (and that is limited to the new slim line sixes, not the stove bolts found in early Chevys).
