Definetly a 250 six. Carb will be too big for what you need.
That suffix shows up as an 81 305. I didn't know the six bangers had similiar codes. It's not a 292 though. A 292 had 6" tall side covers and the fuel pump was closer to the starter behind the motor mount.
Likely a 1970 or newer motor.

None of those appear to be the block casting codes. I don't know where they're located on a six cylinder motor, maybe the bell-housing top/rear? Here are some links to numbers. The numbers will be cast/raised, not stamped.

It's not a 305. It's just a coincidence that UAJ on your six cylinder block is the same as it is on a 305.

game plan is to identify what motor I have so I can update parts on it and get it ready for install. easier to do now while it's out than after I hook it up to tranny.

Those are production codes, stamped on the motor.

The other raised cast codes you posted appear to be one number short of what I see in the list of codes, you show six, most of the others are seven digits. I just think there are other numbers you may not have found, possibly in the bell housing area.

I am posting three pics now labeled A,B and C. they are of each side of the bell housing area. No new numbers to be seen. Thinking that the "stamped" set are legit?

I was asking about the big game plan.
So you have a truck you want to build for your boy!
Do you want it stock?
Modified?
Does he want power steering, power brakes etc.?
Does he need lots of power or nice paint?
That kind of game plan!
Just wondering!!

My avitar is the truck I have that I want running for my boy. I would like to keep it stock as of right now. Just getting it running is the main plan. I already have a customer that we're going to barter with one another who does body work, so that is covered. Power steering and power brakes . . . maybe? I guess that all depends on the cost as of now. I want my boy to be able to drive a stick going into getting his license like how I was taught at his age with my Dad's 1956 Chevy Pick-up (that was a BLAST btw).

I'm just at a stand still since Monday on identifing this motor. it's frustrating cuz there aren't a lot of people around my area who can help out. They've all become to reliant on the computer system and do not know old school tricks of the trade like the true blue collar anthusiasts did back in the day.

I have taken almost every pic I can of what I have, I believe.

If there is anything else I can do, I'm more than willing to do so apart from actually sending it somewhere that'll cost me a arm and a leg.

Here's some thoughts!
I ask about the game plan cause there's a few things to consider now.
Power steering and brakes aren't a bolt on for a 65. If you keep the six banger then power steering brackets are hard to come by and expensive. And you need an adaptor to bolt the steering gear to the frame. Power brakes need another adaptor and a kit to install the brakes to your front end.
I guess I'm saying you gotta plan way ahead.
I understand your desire to have the boy learn to drive like you did but several times I've seen a dad build a vehicle for one of his kids and then the truck never gets used. There's a big difference between when you learned to drive and modern day kids driving expectations. He might not want an old truck to drive!
He might prefer all the modern conveniences! You could be throwing a lot of money away.
It might be your dream and not his!
Just trying to save you a lot of frustration!
Just some of my random thoughts!
Not intended to offend.
Just freindly advice!!
