They made at least 1500 of the flat front /FJ type block
Was used fitted to probably everything built in 1963 and possible in to early months of 1964

Have also seen them with 970 tags on them .

That engine does not have the copper heater pipe on back of head

I believe this one on Ebay is a true FJ block. It has all the correct extra holes.
