Post '69 El Camino SS

Recently purchased '69 El Camino SS. It's been sitting quite awhile but I think I finally got all the junk flushed out of the engine,tranny,& rear end. Runs good, but how do I tell what size engine it has ? Engine is the only non-original part. (Darn it !) I know orginal engine was a 396 & car has all the 396 emblems. Guy I bought it from stated engine is a 402. Is there an easy way for me to tell ? My Dad taught me just enough to be sure I wouldn't be treated like a "woman" at repair shops. He also took me with him when he ran at El Mirage in the old days. Please help the lady in distress. <a href="http://queenbee@sbcglobal.net" target="_blank">email</a>[/LIST]queenbee@sbcglobal.net
