360 in my scrambler

How do I find out what year a 360 is? I have two in my garage right now, going with a 700r4 and a np 208 transfer case. I need the engine year to get the right adapter. Where is the block manufacture number located? Thanks, Alan.

Looking from the top, where the bellhousing bolts to the motor, there is a number stamped on the ridge, towards the drivers side. A parts store or machine shop should be able to look it up & tell you the year. They will probably only be able to tell you a range of years. Mine is an '88-90.

Assuming this is an AMC 360. They have been built from 1972 to 1991. The bellhousing pattern is the same on all. Older AMC's had differences. If it has '360' or '5.9' cast into the side of the block, your safe.

OK, The number on both blocks is 3195528. Advance Adapters sets their torque converters as pre and post 1978. I did find out that early models had stud rockers on the heads, and late models had bolt downs. I figure worst case scenario, order one, doesn't fit, send it back for the other one. I do have a friend with a very complete machine shop out here, we should be able to make somethng work. Thanks for the quick responses, Alan.
