Thanks BK, the block does not look like the lighter weight late model blocks so it must be the '72.

If it will help you out any, you can get a book from Steve Smith Autosports or "Chevrolet Small Block V-8 ID Guide" written by Pierre Lafontaine and published by Motorsports International that will give you all the info on date codes and stamping numbers on block, heads, etc. I have both of them and they are great to have when you are combing through the junk pile.
