    I bought a locked up 69 HP 440 a while back. Upon cleaning today and heaved it up on a engine stand that got freed up.
    VIN reads DH43L9D133....
    What kind of car is this from?
    Yes I'm being lazy and not looking it up.

    It’s probably just the backspacing.

    I was originally thinking it was the thermostat but when I removed the whole water pump housing it still would not turn.
    Yes I checked the ballast thingy.
