The 5.7 is telling you it is a 350 cid engine block. The other number is a part number for the block. If you look real close you should see a couple of dials on the casting that tells you the time and date of manufacturing. Mexico blocks are just as good as any of them the foundry process is the same to pour the block.

gm 2.5 is a four cylinder. number one is on the passenger side. GM has a 2.8 liter V-6, number one is on the back side of the engine on the passenger side. 1-3-5 are on the back 2-4-6 are on the front.

If that does not help let me know what year make and model and I'll get you the info you need.

I would like to identify a block # of 1m0525 5vp.

from what i find , the format of the number is incorrect. Engine ID Code Example: V0107CLJ i can find meanings of the "m0525" but nothing on the first 1. and the suffix code is 3 letters. so from what i worked out, the "m" would be from the mexico plant. and the "0525" would be the engine build date, may 25th, no year stamp. the "5vp" is what's got me. there's only 4 suffix codes i found that start with numbers and none are 5vp. the closest i found on just the "vp" without the "5" would be a "vr" listed as a 350 1969 with 4 barrel carb out of a c-20 or c-30. the closest i could find for "5vp" would be "suf" and there were 2. both listed as 305's 1984. one out of a monte carlo and one out of a firebird.

If you take a white crayon and go over them numbers you should be able to read what the missing number is, unless the block has been miled down, as far as knowing what the engine is, if you get all the numbers you can go on line to G.M. and you can find out what it is, I have done it a lot on classic cars that i have purchased or thought about purchasing. Also you can use the block numbers on the back of the block on the left side thru G.M.s web site and also find out. I also know that 4-bolt maine blocks came in 3/4 ton and larger trucks and some camaros.
