First question. I have the starter down and looking at the engine number there. It is "C5AE-6015E" and "7E2" above that. Car Marti Report says build date is 07/10/67 it is an ZR7. How can I tell if this is the original engine for the car. marti Report and serial number say it should be a 4V engine.

second question. I have the Carb off and on the driver side of the intake there is an area under the carb gasket under the spacer that is 3/4 the way full of oil. It is covered by the carb intake gasket. Is this normal and where did the oil come from?

Any help out there would be appreciated.

DSC01262.jpg Bryan, here's a pic of my block with my VIN stamped on it. It's on pad on the block behind the intake. Also, the 7E2 is the date code for when the block was cast:7-1967, E-Month of May & 2-2nd day. Hope this helps. John
