Double checking here, I have a $100 engine that I was told was a 73 400. It had 73 stickers on the valve covers, has a 400 crank .010 under, but the block has D7TE A3B. No cracks in the valley area, and is in almost usable shape as-is (unbored). All agreed that this is a 77 block? I'll check the heads tonight.
Thanks!

The casting number is not 100% accurate. If there are no design changes the block is used for several years. Find the casting date if you want to know when it was made. The date will look something like 7K20. 7-year K-month(Nov) 20-day.

I think you got the good one. If I remember right, the TE is the block with the thick webbing around the thrust bearing. They needed more strength for the heavy duty clutch used in trucks.
