Verify a 351w block.

I was given a Ford block that came out of a mid 80's ford truck. The block was not the original block for said vehicle. The block has a red Ford reconditioned tag on the front of the block. In the lifter valley there is a 351 cast near the front of the block. I've called the local Ford dealership and asked if they could help me decipher the #'s on the block. I was kind of rudely told "NO". SO I'd like to know does anyone out there know of any sites or literature where I may find if in fact this is a 351 and what year the block may be.
This block is for a project: 1993 Ranger, going to be bored out to 396-408, going to use a 5 or 6 speed, already has an 8.8. Any support or suggestions will be greatfull.

The casting # above the starter location will tell you WHAT it is. There are casting dates, also on the block, that will tell you WHEN it was.
