Is This A 4 Bolt Block?

Bolt pattern looks like this looking under the motor and up at the crank.

if your block is a 4-bolt, u will have four bolts in each main cap. Two on each side of it. Hince 4 bolt main block. according to your diagram u should have a 4-bolt main block.

Ok listen I have a problem, now the first problem is that there appears to be no casting number on a block that I have (Anyone know were to look for newer blocks, its a 1990, its out and I looked everywhere but cannot find one). This motor is outta a 1990 G30 1 ton van...I checked the motor and its a 4 bolt. Now when I checked the head number on the driver side clyinder head it said 14102191 which is a head from a 1986-88 350 1.94 1.5001 - EFI, swirl port but thats the problem...its a 1990, is the site wrong? because this engine hasnt been touched that I know of.

HELP!

you read wrong on mortec it says

14102191...87-up...350


the block casting number should be on the rear drivers side of the block on a similar plane to the head surface if its a greasy engine use a wire brush and search for it.. also check on the front passengerside deck surface there is a stampped number. this can also identify the block and its sometimes more thorough than the casting number.

Ya but mortec didnt give me much info so I checked http://www.nastyz28.com/sbchevy/sbch.html and looked at the numbers and got 1986-88 14102191 350 1.94 1.5001 - EFI, swirl port Did the site just mess up the years?

As for the locations you gave me I checked them and found nothing.
