You can check the bore and stroke for starters. The 292 has a 3.750 bore and a 3.300 stroke, while the 312 steps up to 3.800 on the hole and 3.440 length for the arm. Not much difference is there? I'd look at the stroke first.

Here is waht I know-

6015 is Ford's number for an engine block. All blocks have this number.

Block identification number is generally on side of block above the oil filter for blocks cast at Cleveland. Dearborn block I.D. number is near the distributor or above generator. Most Dearborn blocks were used in trucks. No Dearborn blocks were cast after 1957. There were no special truck blocks. Heavy duty trucks with steel cranks used C1AE or C2AE car blocks. Nearly all Dearborn blocks after 1954 were 272's. Most 292 and 312 blocks are from the Cleveland foundry.

1956 ECZ 6015 A with EBU main caps =292.
ECZ main caps = 312
