without tearing apart how can u tell a 3.8 from a 4.2? It is out of a El Canino,but I dont know what year.Is there numbers somewhere on the block that would signify what engine,what should I look for?
I think the elky`s came with 229`s, which was a 305 with 2 less cylinders.
Some also came with 200`s which were the 262 with 2 less cylinders, However, casting numbers seem to be a bit scarce on these, hopefully someone out there has them.
Yeh I think the 85&up el canino"s had 4.2 or3 or whatever it was,but I don't know what year this engine was in.That's why someone will be able to tell me to look for numbers somewhere to tell what size and year it is.I'm going to rebuild it for my 26T (it has a 4 cyl datsun in it now),but I'm not in any hurry,the datsun runs good mostly going to V6 so I can have auto tranny. In the meantime if I come across any good deals on parts (manifolds,cams,hedderr,etc) I will have to be sure what engine I have
