The range of years doesn't tell you if it's a one piece seal block or two, or two or 4 bolt block, but I am pretty sure I took this thing apart and it was a one piece seal and 4 bolt block, so it came from a truck of that era.
I haven't touched the heads, but I would expect them to be on par with something like an 882 head and they are a lightweight casting. Not sure if they are crack prone like the 882's or not though.

Thanks toast, thats the best info that I've gotten so far. So basicly its a mid to late 80's truck motor in a vette. Outstanding, now I have an edge to grind him down on price
