The VIN should be on the right (passenger) side of the block just ahead of the head facing up.

The block casting number should be at the left rear on the bell housing attach flange.

The head casting numbers will be bewteen the valve springs located under the rocker covers.

Looks like it's been used as a boat anchor on the Charles River, hopefully it isn't as ichy inside as it is on the outside.

Man that road salt did a job! What do you intend to use the engine for? Daily driver with fuel mileage or HiPer? If HiPerformance ditch the heads they're junk swirlports.

Hey, it turns over!
I just want to get it cleaned up and put it in to get the car running. ,then it will be a ride in progress. Just want to hit the local rod runs and go to the A&W DRIVE IN etc.
Yeah, the salt up here is murder. Even the bolts on my Jeep are rusting just from the salt air and it is only4 trs. old and been down south 3 winters!

Thanx Bogie.

I cleaned up the outside today. Pulled the plugs and found no oil on them. Take that as a good sign. A little surface rust on the end of some of the plugs. Pulled the headers and again found no oil, another good sign. Just a thin coating of carbon, same on the plugs. Good sign?

I could not find the vin# or any stamped #'s. Maybe a rebuilt?
Have the block #.

10054727 GM made in CANADA.

Where can I find out what the block 3's tell me?

Any other locations to look for vin #?
There are 2 senders. One on a port 1" above the oil filter.
The other on the pass. side down by the oil pan .Which is what?
Also found a leak ,crack in the oil pan, The outside is pretty rusty and I had it sitting on the pan for the ride home in the p/u.
I have a older pan that is better. '68. will they swap, or should I JB weld it for the time being.

Thanx for the help, Bob

Without a VIN I can't get to an exact year but that's an 86 to 95 heavy duty truck block, 1 piece rear seal, with 2 or 4 bolt mains, given what it came out of I'd suspect 4 bolts till I knew better. No your old pan will not fit, the seal ends of the engine and the dipstick locations are not the same.

The sender by the filter is oil pressure. What your looking at on the pass side is probably a detonation sensor from the EFI system.

Vin should be on right passenger side of block just in front of head if your looking down. Unless the salt ate it.

Update

Well ,in case you had not followed my thread on Q-jet problems, I got that motor running finally. But after about a total of 20 minutes and actually moving undr its own power it broke !

I found a piece of steel in #3 hole. The head broke and the piston too. To bad was running really good till that piece got in there. MMust have been in the intake port and did not come out with the cleaning I gave it. It would have to have fallen in while syored with the throttle body off before I bought it. I know, no excuse.

So, I am trying to locate another and try again.
