Try to enter the engine casting numbers again and I will give you the year, model and HP that was offered. The HP will be a range between low/high depending on what heads are being used. If you provide the head casting number I can give you specific HP and torque numbers.

What location did you find the casting number? What is the number on the rear top of the engine between the two bolt holes? Do you or have you had the engine apart before?

I have found a site that will help you. It would take quite a few messages between us for me to explain clearly how to find out the info you requested. It would also be confusing. Here is the site http://www.trishieldperf.com/engine_identification.htm

If you need any more help or do not understand the info in the site please contact me again. As you will see there are more than one set of numbers you need to look at as well as the oil feed hole to be sure what engine. Thank you.
