amc 360 identification

having problems finding reliable information on this stuff.

360 is stamped underneath the engine brackets. its a 360.

back by the bellhousing engine casting number is 3195528. which is supposedy a 70-84 on one website and 70-91 on another.

valve cover tag begins with an 811. so if its the original valve cover this engine was made in november of 1975 or 1988.

stamped into the intake valley (area between the pushrods and the underneath intake manifold, not sure what its called) is an 88. does this mean it's an 88?

anybody know what i should look for, i guess that this thing is either a 75 or an 88 but im not certain which.

im trying to determine if this engine has ever been rebuilt? the main bearings are stamped with the amc logo and some read 10-8 or 11-8 or 11-8 .001.

all of the rod bearings are stamped with 10-8.

thanks for any insight into this. i've never worked on the internals of an engine before.
