V=Plant 08= Month 09=Day RAS not sure at this point.


But you can get the # on the back of the block on the pad beside the distributor is and can tell you what engine is. JMO

Thanks for the REBUILD hint---it goes along with the block-off plate for the fuel pump. This enging is in a 94 PU injected and I bought it at auction. Original engine was a 305 but seeing the block-off plate raised my thoughts as to being a replacement. Now, I will try and get numbers off the back of block--but it is a VERY tight fit.

That engine might just have the fuel-pump block off plate due to the fact that it came out of a vehicle from the factory that had a built in fuel pump in the tank/ electric fuel pump. JMO

Use a mechanic's telescoping mirror and a very strong light.
