Engine Identify

I've got to try this again. I really need to know what year my engine block is. It is a 360 (from a J10 supposedly) and the numbers I can find are:
on the valve cover 207N25
on the intake 3224168 AN 16 BZC
on the block inside between the lifters, camshaft and intake. You have to remove the intake to see it F198
If you can help me out I'd really appriciate it. I want to get my new intake and some other parts but need to be certain what year block I have. Thanks again, Brian

I can't really help you with any specific information, but I might be able to give you some ideas where to look. I know this is the
second post, so I guess you are not having much luck. First of all I would stop by a dealer parts department when they are not too
busy and see if they can help you. Another place to try is going a good auto parts store. Again when they are not busy. Most
stores like that sell rebuild engines and from my experience working behind the counter they often have the engine codes in the
different catalogs. This will take some looking around though if you can't give specific info. on what it came out of.
Good luck,

here's a real long shot...try chrysler/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif they were able to decpher my vin # and the one here in state college still has there AMC jeep sign out front (on east college ave, not sure of the name) If they are of no help I can did up the number for the dealership in Philly that helped me out.

If you will take a level and line up the intake bolt holes from the front of the head to the back of the head and they are all straight across you have a older style set of heads, if the two in the middle aren't level with the others then you have the newer style. Most of the time the exhaust ports on the older style heads were square and the newer ones have a dog leg notch in the exhaust port. Just my 2 cents.

What you have is a 360 from a J PU, manufactured on July 25, 1978. I'm not a magician, go to this site, it has all that sort of info.

Thank you!

I knew there had to be a person on this site that either had the knowledge or idea for how to get it. Thank you very much for the time and info. I tried the local jeep dealer as MMark had suggested and they either couldn't or weren't willing to help me out. I'm on my way to pick up my parts right now. Thanks agian, Brian
