Still working on the "CCA" portion.

 

0326B2 means it was built on March 26, 1969 (03-26), Buffalo plant, 2nd shift (B-2)

I can't find anything with the C C A on it. Also would like to find out about a block I have, numbers are C086284 YC, 21c304499,485428

Casting code 485428 means you have a 455 engine block made between 71-74, either a two or four barrel carb. YC means it was an automatic car. The date the block was made is by the distributor hole. Where were these other numbers?

L090 = December 9, 1970 was when the block was made. So this block was made for the 1971 model year.

Thanks for info . Now got to figure out the ratio in my rear end so I can order a cam

That’s easy to approximate Jack up the rear end properly. Put the car in neutral. Rotate a rear tire once. Count the number of revolutions of the driveshaft it takes to turn the tire. A little over three is a 3.07, three and a half should be a 3.55, three and a third is a 3.73, almost four is 3.90, just over four should be a 4.11. Just shy of three and a half is a 3:42. I recommend using a chalk mark on the the transmission tail housing and the u-joint, as well as the tire to the bottom of the fender.
