Need a year for my motor

These are the numbers I found on what I believe to be a 292 Chevy engine, but want to make sure. CON23 G143 473483. I have this motor sitting on my bench in hopes to install it into my 1965 20 series pick-up soon! need a fly wheel for it and other things before the install. Can anyone help me with the Year? Thank you Much!

I guess onne needs to type out loud to figure things out. lol. Here's what I got, Flint Plant-June 19th-1981 305 w/140HP.

now . . . .next ? is, do any of you think that this will work in my 1965 C-20? I'm a little disappointed in the year I guess cuz I'm thinking it may not work . . . BUT, if it can work, it's close to 20 years newer than I thought. So hopefully thats a PLUS!


Any thoughts? More the merrier please!

Thank You!

It's a 305 sbc. Should bolt in. You might need to get different motor mounts and towers.
What tranny you got?

5 speed on the floor.

The truck I wanna put the 305 in used to have a 250 in it that I just found out to be a CE or "Chevy Exchange" and it was #12,569 produced from the Flint Plant in 1968.

so you're saying the bell housings will line up?

this 305 I am understanding is a Bigger motor than the 250 it had before? I know it's newer. . . just wanna make sure it'll be sufficient enough.

Sufficient enough for what purpose. A daily driver? Yes! Drag racing! No!
You say 5 speed. What 5 speed?
Besides mounts you'll need exhaust manifolds that fit or headers. Maybe a bigger radiator. Different starter. Some wiring changes. Possible throttle control changes.
Six banger and 305 mount in different locations too.

what are the "towers"?

I am very much a rookie in all this terminology and am getting this truck Drivable for my 15 year old for when he gets "legal" to drive. HA!

Thanks again!

Towers are part of the engine mounts. Towers are the brackets that bolt to the frame crossmember. Motor mounts bolt to them.
A 2 piece system.

The radiator is heavy duty and New. So thats taken care of. And already ordered out new starter for the 305. PArts store said for a Camero, which will be more than enough for the truck??

Take a pic of the tranny from the bottom side.
If the shifter linkage is on the side it's not a 5 speed. 5 speed has it on top.
You might be further ahead to join up on the 67-72 chevy truck forum.
Lots of knowledge here but not specific to your build.

You posted numbers from a 305. With a suffix of UAJ.
