Sad news is MorTec has shut down their web site. Inquiring about MorTec.com by way of Google returns a bunch of porn sites; which to me is sacrilegious.

You can see a copy of their old web site in its 2008 glory by visiting Nasty Z28's web pages, as they had copied the entire MorTec information page incorporating it into their web pages. I suggest you copy it as MorTec is requesting the Nasty Z28 take it down as a copyright violation though I think it falls under the fair use doctrine myself (but then I have not yet been admitted to the bar so I will have to settle for playing a lawyer on TV).

I was told my 1964 chevy impala ss has the orig engine and transmission looks to be 327. Where is the casting number for the engine and where the numbers to see if it has stock trans. I'm new to this thanks

I'm new to the 64 ss and looking for the casting code on the trans and engine. Was told it's orig 327 with powerglide but I want to see. Any info would be great paint codes and int match and it was made in the la plant.

the casting # is on the driver side behind the head at transmission flange and the date code is on the other side same location .

The casting code for your engine is on the top rear of the block, it is kind of hard to see with the engine in the car but if you want to know more precisely if it is the correct engine look at the easily acessable engine assembly stamping on the right front engine pad. This is the part of the block that sticks out under the head on the passenger side. Read the letters and digits and compare to your build date on the cowl tag. This will tell you if it is an original 327 and what tranny it was attached to. This should be an alph then 4 numerals then a 1 or two digit alpha. Something like F0602SB (June 2nd, 327/300hp with powerglide).
If you are really lucky there will also be a partial VIN number stamped in that location (only stamped on some of the high horsepower 327's in 64)


I dont recall off hand where the casting is for the tranny but once you have verified that it is a 64 powerglide then you should check the date stamping. This is stamped into the bottom of the pan it will read something like T0515D (May 15th day shift)

Both of these date codes should be within a few weeks (prior) of the car assembly week (first row on the cowl tag, ie 06C, third week of June) if they are the original items.

Sorry about the mess I was attempting to merge two duplicate threads and didn't get the intended results. Please only one thread per topic. Do not ask the same question twice or I will delete one of them as the merge button dosen't seem to work.

I am glad you posted the explanation because I thought I got a bad batch of ham for lunch and I was starting to hallucinate.

They may be covered with grease and grime but the casting numbers are on the passenger side of the block on the rear transmission mounting tray. The driver's side has the date code and time stamp. If you don't have gorgeous paint and bdon't mind blowing grease and grime all over the engine compartment you can blast it with a pressure wash wand from the coin operated car wash (which helps clean up the mess you blow off the block before you go home and really clean it again).

A picture is worth a thousand words. Have you looked at the two web sites provided? The MorTec site has info not only on the numbers but in where they are hiding. (in the back of the motor behind the distributor).

I've looked at both sides the bulky exhaust coming out the block maybe behind that? I can't find and the motor clean. I'm new to this numbers stuff but I went under the car and seen right away it say power glide on the transmission. However I can not find a casting or a manufacture date anywhere I feel dumb asking you guys but I'm lost on this man. I know it got the power glide after that dunno. I really want this to be the motor it rolled out with
