Not sure what you are asking, but the only thing different between 4V and 2V is the heads and intake, the blocks are the same. There are some 4-bolt Cleveland blocks, early CJ and Boss 351 had them, late CJ and HO were 2-bolt. The D2AE-Ca just designates a 72 or later block(D2).

So you don't get taken again, 4V heads all have a "4" cast right next to the corner of the valvecover rail where it meets the corner of the intake, any other letter or # is a 2V head.

The casting # you gave does not mean 4V, there is no casting # specific to 4V, that is why I said look at the corner of the head.

Likely what you have based off that casting # is a 72-73 2V engine.
