    the dumb numbers on the starboard side, behind the Alternator read:

    B 225 9 21

    what year is this engine? i am not the PO so i am beginning to think (who me!?) that this engine is not the original one on my 66 Valiant.

    numbers on the block: 081 95 2468430 - 11

    stay safe.
    thanks

    My guess. Is the engine a slant 6 ie B 225
    Also if it is a /6, there's info if you do a search on this forum about "how to id slant 6"

      thanks for the info.... i would have responded sooner, but i forgot that i had to sign in again!! with that letter "B" wonder if this engine originated in a Baracuda?? no complaints on my engine, fires right up and runs great, has a Holley 1920 on it now. stay safe. thanks
