390 service block date code location

'67 bird with a 390 that I am trying to get running, after changing out dist and carb, I had problems getting it started. I was a tooth off on the distributor, restabbed that and was checking fluids when I got the dreaded chocolate milk dipstick. I have pulled the heads off and they are C8AE-H. The intake is the right S code late '66.The block date code is 5k26 so it could be Oct 26, 1965 or 1975.
I can't find a decade code on the block, the rear plate on the drivers side is blank, any other locations I should de-crud next--I think I just created this cars nickname, "de-crud mobile". Thanks Dave
