Motor, Tranny, Rear End Ientification
« on: March 30, 2021, 03:56:26 PM »
So I bought the Firebird this past weekend.  I have found out a little info about the engine (see attached photos) 
Numbers on bac k of block drivers side are 18 GM 3970010  Numbers on front passenger side are V0916CNN
V tells me it was made in Flint MI.  CNN tells me it was made in 1970, 350CI, 250HP, originally 2 barrell carb with TH350 Tranny, installed in either Camaro, Chevelle, El Camino, or a Nova. 

I do not know what 18 GM means (GM probably means General Motors).  I do not know what the 0916 means.  I have searched but have had no luck finding any info.

I do not know what the DNT and circle of dots mean.  Any ideas?

Is there a way to tell what transmission is on the car without pulling it out?  All I know now is that it is automatic.

Is there a way to tell what rear end is on the car?  There should be a tag somewhere correct?  I know I need to replace rear bearings, wheel seals, and probably the drum brakes while I have it all apart.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
