Engine Identification

Hey just wondering how i can identify a 351W, where do i find the codes on the block if there are any. I've been told the engine comes from an old cop car, i want to see if it's true or not. (it is in fact a 351W, i just want to know the stock specs and parts it has in it without taking it apart) Thanks!

The first thing you will notice is that the Engine is a lot wider due to the taller deck height of the 351 Block. If you see one next to a 302 you will spot it straight away.
