Chevy engine ID, can anyone help id my 350 engine?

I purchased an engine. The seller (reliable friend w/some knowledge) said it came from a 71 chevy Truck that it is a 350ci 4 bolt mains. I have the numbers and have tried to make sense out of them but I am sent to 69 by the block casting number and cant find accurate information from the other number from the right front. Here they are
casting 3932386
Front right pad
19J141972 V1012FB
The websites I went to are all over the place and I am so confused, can anyone tell me what engine I have and what it was from? Thanks Ron

Ron -- first check our Knowledge Base, we have a specific category devoted to Chevrolet engine technical specifications: General Motors Engine Technical Data.

If you can't find what you're looking for in there, I'm sure someone will be able to lend a hand.

Generally, the casting numbers don't distinguish betwwen 2 and 4 bolt mains. The best way is to remove the pan and have a look.

You gotta realize that a 71 truck is 35 years old....a 69 engine could have been substituted years ago.

I looked the block casting number up at Mortech.com and it showed to be a 69 it said it could be a 302 ( rare) or a 327 or a 350. It also showed it both ways 2 bolt and 4 bolt main.

My Prosis data base said
67-69 302
68-69 5.4 litre (327 I presume)
78-79 5.7 litre 350

as for four bolt, the only method I know for sure is,take off pan or try to look at main caps with front cover removed.
I also thought years ago that a block casting number ending in (010) was a four bolt, bought one from junk yard, paid 4-bolt price, a few years later I decided to use it , tore it down and it WAS NOT a four bolt. Lesson learned the hard way.

I appreciate the help.

I purchased it for a great price ($100) the guy said that it was running but not well. I want to rebuild it and I an not sure how much I need to know to purchase all the parts. I am going to start the tear down in a few weeks and if I need to replace piston rods or crank or any major components I want to make sure that I am getting the right ones. Seems to me it could be important.

Duece

I was kind of thinking the same thing. I have a Chilton's manual for 62 to 72 cars and the only place I could find the FB engine designator was on the 69 Corvette engine specs. I am a beginner at restorations and engine rebuilding. I have worked on my own cars all my life but this is my first restoration car. I am building a 66 Chevy II Nova. Thanks for your help.

If that Nova is a standard tranny, you are going to have an issue with the clutch pivot. Nova blocks had a special boss on them for that. Just something to think about.

You have to remember too, that the Novas had a front sump pan and oil pickup....................Rear sump wont clear the stock steering arms.

If that is the engine, I have my doubts that it is a 4 bolt main............they had 4bbls on them. Of course, I may be wrong.

4 bolt main

I agree. The casting number shows that if it is a 327 then it is a 2 bolt main the 327 did not appear to come in 4 bolt
302 and 350 showed both. 2 & 4.
I was able to find the casting number on several web sites. the other numbers from the front right are the ones that are confusing. I will take the oil pan off tonight and take a look. I will post a picture. I do appreciate the information you added about the oil pan and the trans.

www.mortec.com says

3932386....302.....69....4...Z-28 Camaro
3932386....327.....69....2
3932386....350.....69....4

I guess you need to look up the crank #s to know the stroke, cause there all the same bore, crank #s or the stroke will let you know if its a 302 327 or a 350 look the crank #s up off the http://www.mortec.com/cranks.htm website.
