LT1 built 1980 ( I think ) LT1’s started in ‘74 and you add the ‘30’ to 1950 to get the year.

Fired it up today after cleaning out the fuel tank and bowl. Ran beautifully for the few seconds I let it, got it powering up a lamp as well. Found a pdf online of the shop manual so that's good.

Couldn't figure out what the bung next to the top of the engine block was for, is there meant to be a water jacket or something?

Might have to go give the block an extra $50, I would have paid that if he had known it was in working order.

If you mean this one, thatís for adding a small amount of oil to assist cold starting ( helps seal the rings bumps up compression a bit)

Yeah that was my guess Have to go find a matching new fuel filter and then I'd say it's ready to try some hard work with to test the genny out!
