    Serial number location on 340 engine block

    Hello all,

    Where are the serial number locations on a 340 block? Are they on the sealing surface of the pan rail? A fellow I know has a 340 I am looking to buy, he claims it is out of a 69 Dart but the date codes are 9 9 68. Very likely built in late 68 as a 69 model year. I wish to look up the serial number to help further identify the engine. 69 340 with x heads, stock intake and a .030 late 80's rebuild, still running for $1000 Canadian. Regardless of the dates I think thats a good deal. Another item to hold down my garage floor untill I find a home for it.

    Regards, Chris

    On a 69 block sold in 1969 the partial vehicle vin# is stamped just above the oil pan rail (I believe on the right side in the center)

    On the front of the block, left side just below the cylinder head, are the actual factory stampings on any small block.
