74-93... from what I see.

there should be a 2 digit year on the block by the rest of the numbers you found..or mabey its the passenger side... (least thats the way it is on my sbc). I dont know if big blocks are the same way or not, they probably are though.) Possibly hidden under some grease if its not too clean :evil:

RH side of engine on plate says made for GMC then part # 88890529 then serial # 08447 thanks grace
Grace, what you're looking at there is the engine assembly date/suffix code and partial VIN code information. you need to find the engine casting number which will be on the drivers side, behind the head on the block just where the back of the engine bolts to the bell housing. you probably will have to get in there and look with a flashlight. it will be a 6 or 7 digit number, starting with a 3,6 or 1. get me that number and I'll tell you what you've got.
