Spot on 100% correct.
Nearly every square block in australia and america is a D2AE-CA block, they came in 2 and 4 bolt (america only) If it hasn't got any engine numbers its because its been imported from america and was a factory 4 bolt block.
The Date code of manufacture - 2C29 is also spot on.
Ive got exactly the same std bore 4 bolt block as this at home too, i think its even got the same casting date!
