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.

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.
