That is pretty cool that it was under the paint and survived your sandblasting.

I think those numbers may be M-codes (option codes) they used to be on an aluminum plate behind the drivers seat bulkhead on the split buses.

Probably a supervisor with a grease pen marking the Westy for the assembly workers- whole lot easier looking at a tiny steel plate
It's pretty cool that it survived your paint removal blasting

SCORE!!!!
You already have AMC head castings!!! Len can easily update these and save you money!

Also the pistons and cylinders look fresh... Tear it all the way down, you might need my DVD to do it more easily. Looks better than I expected!

That sounds great Jake. I'll order your DVD tonight. Should I try to get these heads to Len this weekend? or bring them up there to you?
