i don't mean to crash in on your info setup- i'm sure this is in the wrong forum. i'm new to this board and know little about cars. a friend has located an engine we would like to resell on ebay. the problem is we r trying to id the engine block # [with no luck so far]. he believes it is an old 50's engine [a small block chevy, i think], but we're not sure. the # is:

F0308D


can anyone id this # or point me in the right direction? would surely appreciate it!

btw, i'm not totally off-base here. my friend has bought and mostly restored a 69 camaro and is much more mechanically inclined than i am. have a pic of the car, but i think the pic has to be posted somewhere on the web first- which it is not.

thanx for your time!

You'd want the casting # for the block, which is located on the back near the driver side of the block. As you look down near the distributor hole, look at the area between the bolt holes where the tranny will bolt to. Should be at least 7+ numbers there.

Then take them to www.mortec.com for IDing.

That SHOULD work. What you got looks like it might have come off the stamp pad on the passenger front of the block in front of the head.

hi!

it's Tim Mculloch from texas again.

just wanted to thank u for the link. found the eng # u were talking about. there's 2 listings, one is for a Z-28, but have a hunch it's the other listing for a truck of some sort.

thanx again

That's a pretty old engine. Late 50s or early 60s 283 cubic inch V8 with auto transmission, built in Michigan at the Flint plant.

ya, i think the guy already stamped it- it was probably to some old commercial vehicle anyway.
