engine ID

Thats an 80 engine block, from a car.

First letter indicates the decade;
C=60
D=70
E=80
F=90

First number indicates the year.
C5=66
D4=74
E0=80

Second letter indicates application
A= auto
T=truck

Third letter indicates major production mods, not exactly sure what that entails.

Third letter (fourth character) indicates responsible design office, E= engine, P= automatic transmission, B= Body

Design mods are in the suffix.

This changed a little in the 90s.

Where did you see the motor number? D3C does not sound like any motor code I am familiar with, they are usually 5 characters, like for example 5S850-AA (number/letter/3 digit number - suffix)
