Can you tell the difference from the outward appearance of a 1975- 1980 302 compared to a later (1985- 1989) engine without seeing the casting numbers? A salvage yard said they have a later engine but it is behind some others and hard to get close to. What is casting numbers for the later 5.0? Thanks.

The later blocks no longer have the casting number above the starter. It's moved to the driver's side lower rear corner and in small numbers & letters.
