motor was given to me. need info...

i just had an old R.V give to me. I was told it has a 327 in it. I don't know a lot of details on it right now. but i do know the block number is 3970010. i looked it up an found out it is from 1968-1979 hp levels are 145-375 hp. a they come in 2 an 4 bolt mains. also this block shows it was used for 327 an 350cid. i guess my question is how can i tell what one it is. or can you with out pulling the pan an running the crank numbers.I'M praying its a 327 cause i already have a 350cid with this number and a 400cid. but always wanted a 327 just so i could say i have one lol.any comments would help. Thanks

Just curious about the year of the RV. If its a 327, it will be a 2 bolt main but it could still be a 350. There is a machined pad on the block-passenger side front where the head attaches to the block, that will have the serial number and a letter code stamped into it. Some of the guys on here will probably be able to decode these for you. Yes to the question about the crank numbers but it would be a big pain in the butt if the engine was still in the RV.
