    Hi Folks! This is my first posting here. I live in Montrose CO and just recently purchased a 76 K5. However, it does not have the correct engine in it according to the last six of the vin. If someone could break down my vin and let me know what engine it should have had in it as well as break down the engine number to let me know what it does have, I would be greatful. The numbers are as follows: VIN-CKL186F119993. (Does the "C" mean Canada?) Engine numbers are: 14K418593 T0912CMR. This "CMR" suffix code is what is stumping me. The engine numbers are telling me it is a 1974 block in a 1976 K5, but what size and HP? Thanks much, Scott Johnston
