    Block numbers are pretty much the only way... though somehow my mechanics knew I had a 327 just by looking at the block without seeing the numbers... of course I hinted that it might be a 327 to begin with, but they were right. My 327 was a 69 block, but isn't worth the metal used to build it...

    the best and only true way to tell is the casting # on the driver side rear of block on top of bellhousing lip. run it or post it up and we can do it for ya.

    or Suffix code, which is on the passenger side deck of the engine block, just forward of where the head meets the block. Behind the alternator.
