Engine horsepower

I recently bought a 1979 vette and had it appraised, purchased for $7000 CDN, put $6500 in mechanical/electrical work and is appraised at $11,000 CDN.

The engine is not matching and I am trying to get the horsepower of the engine in it; the numbers I found on it are; 13L138196 & T1017 CKB?

Any ideas where I might find the info I am looking for?

Motors manual or Chiltons should have those numbers.

More than likely you have a 350. But to be sure, we need the casting numbers off the block. You can find it on the drivers side of the bellhousing mounting flange. Further up the block also on the drivers side will be the date code of the block which will look like this example:
C 7 5 C = March (A = Jan, B = Feb, etc.) 7 = 7th day of the month 5 = 1975, or whichever year or years the block was casted.
