Engine code and date discrepancy - HELP!!

Reading some threads I decided to check out the numbers on my engine to ensure it is a 400cid, like I was told. Well the engine casting number is 9778789 which equates to a 65 or 66 389. The date code by this number is F278 which equates to June 27th of 1968. Front of the engine has a YF code, so if 65 or 66 a 389 and nothing equates for a 68. The F in the YF looks suspect (done with a punch??). Can't find any numbers on the front drivers side that state actual engine size and I have no reason (right now) to disassembly and pull to make sure that there is none where it shouldn't be. I know I will need this info in the future when rebuilding/replacing parts. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Mike

I'm wondering if the date code F278 is actually F276. Maybe the 6 looks like an 8. May want to double check it. As far as the engine size on the side of the block, they didn't start doing that until '68. So if you didn't find one, it probably is pre '68. Check to see too if there is V.I.N. code on the passenger front of the motor next to the timing cover. If not, it's pre late '67. If there is, the 1st digit would be a 2 for Pontiac and the 2nd digit would be the year. The last 6 would match the vehicles V.I.N if it was a numbers matching. 8 digits total. I would check the date code first. I'm thinking it's F276. The YF is probably right.

What he said. The casting code can be hard to see clearly with the engine in the car.

I agree with 68greengoat regarding the date,

The YF code shows up for both 1965 and 1966 as a 389 with 325hp, automatic transmission, 4bbl with AC. This engine was not used for the GTO and probably came from a full size b-body.

To all, I've re-checked the numbers and nothing has changed. There is no doubt that F278 is the number. Checked the front by the timing chain and the number above the YF is 693088. Now I'm really confused since it didn't start with a 2. I do have a 4 bbl with a manual transmission without ac. I have no problem with a 389 (or whatever this ends up being) since it runs great.

I found a few more applications for the YF; All had a 2 bolt main.

Here is the vin code 68greengoat is talking about;



VIN number location on late 1967 to 1979 engines. It starts with “2”,
a letter for the assembly plant, then the vehicle serial number.

Also, 65, 66 and the first part of 67 the casting number was located on the distributor pad, mid year of 67 the casting number was moved behind the #8 cylinder as seen in this picture.

The casting number and date code are on the distributor pad. Had to remove the securing bracket to completely read the casting number. Both numbers are in good condition and clean so easy to read. The vin (?) and engine code I gave was not in the exact location as the picture. It is higher up on the block but still near the timing cover on the passenger side. I can see no other numbers in this area without removing interference.
