What 302 do I have
I am going to put gaskets on a rebuilt 302 I just bought. When I got it the rear main was not in correctly so I want to retorque everything and put all new gaskets in. The only casting number I can find reads E0A and the last letter is a 5 or a S not sure. That is all the numbers or letters I can find behind where the starter bolts on. If I look at the edge of the block in that area there are another series of numbers and letters also. I think this is a 1980 block but I need to be sure. In the early 80s the rear main changed from 2 piece to 1 piece. Any help would be great. Any help would be great. If there is info im missing to figure this out please let me know where to get it.
