    Bought for project which fell thru. Don't know much about build, I believe was posted here or eBay previously. Was told the following :
    B4b painted intake
    Ta 298h cam
    74' stage one from century
    Maybe previous owner can chime in on specifics.
    $3k o.b.o
    Pick-up only, can take additional pics

    Will try another picture. Can make out the "z" only due to paint coating. I know it should also have the "s" to verify it is a true stage 1 motor.. Not trying to mislead anyone here, only what I was told. Anyone have suggestions how to remove paint as not to damage letter stamp?

    It reads ZA. The letter "A" is on the right hand side of the exposed surface.

    74 Riviera GS donor maybe?

    Yes, looks like an "a" stamp. As previously stated, only went on previous sellers information I was told. Thanks for your input.

    Some 74 Rivs had an optional emblem that said “stage 1”. I do not know the engine code for those. It may have been ZS.
