Get the casting number from behind the drivers side head. That'll help.

Here is a page w/info on ID'ing the castings. Here's a page on ID'ing various Chevy engines.

I'm not seeing that TUA suffix code. If the suffix is correct that could mean you have a truck engine- they are sometimes left out of the data bases. You'll want to check to see if you have a tall deck block or not before proceeding to build it. If it turns out you have a TD block, here is a thread on a budget build up.
