I know every engine has casting numbers that tell which day it was built on and what shift, plant, etc.... Just curious as to where the casting numbers would be on the 318 in my 96 ZJ and how to decode what they mean. Thanks for any help.

This info is from the '95 FSM Smile


The engine build datecode should be on the right side of the block between #2 and #3 cylinders

the first digit is the year, next 2 are the month, 4th and 5th are engine type/fuel system/compression ratio (don't ask me how to decode them cause I don't know), and the 6th and 7th digit are the Date of build.
