the block casting when you are looking at the rear of the engine would be where the bellhousing bolts to the engine on the top-left side of the engine, the head casting should be on the left side head when looking from the back torwards the middle-bottom,and the crank cast should be behind the flywheel on the engine

SOURCE: I purchased a 350 Chevy
3970010 = casting number of an 350 small block.
V0408TDR = V - motor made in Flint, 0408 - made in april 8th, TDR - in 1980 for an californian sold car with 155 hp, auto trans and C-10 body.
C8F438333 = partial VIN number, it should match the VIN on the body of the original car: C - engine code, Chevy small block; 8 - engine model year 1978; F - car manufacturing plant Flint, 438333 - manufacturing serial number of the car.

Search the block for the engine block casting number. The numbers are raised, not stamped into the block and consist of seven numeric digits. The digits can be located on either side of the block. The seven-digit number may be followed with a dash and further numbers. These are change codes and are not normally necessary to identify the engine.
Locate the casting date is located on the block. It is in standard date coding, 2.25.93, for example and may be located on either side of the block, but is commonly located on the driver's side of the block, above the freeze plugs. The example 2.25.93 decodes as February 25, 1993. The casting date may be near the casting clock, which designates the hour the block was cast. Magnum engines were manufactured from 1993 to 2002, so verifying the date code helps identify the engine.
