How do I identify my motor?

I have an 86 Dodge Ram D-50 4X4. I don't know how to find out what my engine size is...Where do I look?

Its usually on the lower part of the block just above the oil pan, as for which side, I'm not sure.

Re: How do I identify my motor?

while there is a number cast into the side of the block on the drivers side above the pan, its not necessarily the correct size. the best place to look is on the front right of the motor just below the cylinder head, there will be a number stamped into the block. it is the size the engine was bored to. you might have to scrap away some paint to see it.
