Engine number in a xm ute

Does anyone know where they hide the engine number on the early 6 cyl falcons my mate has a XM ute and we are trying to work out what model the motor came out of it is a 250 pre crossflow motor with the inlet manifold cast to the head

from memory about ten years ago my brother had XBs and the number was in the same place as crossflow motors on block under NO.1 exhaust port, could also be next to drivers side engine mount on block

Re: Engine number in a xm ute

Cheers mate i had a quick look at it but i'm used to V8's my mate also thinks the motor he pulled out was a 2V 250 he says the head is different ie no inlet manifold cast onto it but i have no idea how you can identify them if anyone can let me know it would be appreciated
Cheers

if the inlet manifold is on the drivers side and is removable it would be a rare as rocking horse poo(almost)2V. could possibly be a crossflow if the inlet is on the passenger side and exhaust manifold on drivers side but i'd be supprised, if its a 2V i reckon i'd be keeping it that way as they were better than the V8 of the time and lighter
