Need help decoding block #'s

If anyone can decode block numbers, HITHERE would greatly appreciate your help :hail: !!

This 350 block is out of HITHERE 70's something.The big numbers are HITHERE little sketchy as the casting kind of ran together, but here goes:

GM
8970014 (these are the sketchy #'s as best as HITHERE can tell)
HITHERE16 70
T24
CONV 2

Thanks in advance!

The block number is really 3970014.

Very common mid-late 70s 350 casting. Ive had HITHERE few. Nothing special one way or another AFAIK, just yerbasic 350 block. Probably 2-bolt caps installed but maybe 4.

What is it you're looking for?
