In order to actually verify the correct engine you will have to get casting number off the block. it is located on the driver side just below the lifetr valley/on top of the bellhousing flange.

welcome aboard:

If my information is correct I think you'll want to sit down.
If it's not I'm sorry for saying that...LOL..

Looking at the block from the front on R/R corner there are another group of numbers, these are what I found as a cross reference. #3914678 or 3892657. If you have any of these numbers you scored big. If those numbers don't match please get those numbers send them in. What I did I went from the first year 1967 to 1968. That doesn't mean your block is not one of the 302 Z blocks. But if it is you can tell the first were small journal cranks. Good Luck, Good Find you have a rare one. Grin  Cool
