Just because they look the same, doesn't mean they are. i would have still checked the casting number.

MikeAhrado it was on top.
08-13-2010 05:25 PM
bigdog7373 was the throttle body on top or in the front? On top is a regular sbc, in the front is LS.

Hippie Some 880 blocks came with a flat tappet cam also. Mine came out of a '96 1-Ton cargo van. It had the old swirl port TBI heads and TBI. It is fully machined for a mechanical fuel pump.

I had a 6.0 in a 2500hd truck and an 8.1 in a 2500hd 4x4, both had crazy amounts of torque. I wish i still had that 8.1 even with its 6 mpg (on a good day) lol.

You should see "5.7L GAS" if it's a 350, "5.0L Gas" if a 305 that could have been swapped into it. If the engine is original it will likely be a 4-bolt block.

Now, why would the fact that the engine was in a 4WD vehicle mean that YOU had to make your vehicle 4WD? The engine has the tranny bolted to it- it could care less what goes on from the bellhousing flange back, AFA 2- or 4WD.
on a side not, 4WD 88-98 (GMT-400) chevy have a sideways oil filter adapter, this should be changed out to the standard 2WD or Car one.

lmsport GM made the old and new body style trucks for a couple years, and the old body style ones got the old engine. The 1-ton and Sub were the last to convert to the new body and LS engine.
08-13-2010 03:07 PM
bigdog7373 Like i said in your other thread, 1999 and newer had ls engines except for some rare occasions. Find out if it is an ls or not.
08-13-2010 02:28 PM

Get it, Most likely 4-bolt Main

I just picked a 638 out of a 1990 Burb, 4-bolt main, One Piece Rear, No Windage Tray, Fully Machined for roller AND fuel pump provisions all machined! SCORE!

but the being said, my other 638 Block, 2-bolt Main, One Piece Rear, Windage Tray, Roller stuff is there but not machined, and fuel pump is not machined.

So you gotta watch out, same casting number and two different blocks!
