Hey if you have two trucks one has a 318 and the other is supposedly a 360. How do i tell the difference just by looking at them. The 360 is not the original motor for this vehicle.

Thanks

Just by looking at them, if there both 2 barrel motors the 60 has a larger 2 barrel, other than that you have to look on the side of the block, it will tell you everything you need to and want to know

Ok if i am just going by the size of the 2bbl carb then i definately have a 360 here. The carb is frieken huge compared to the one i have on the 318.

Thanks again,
Rod

the carb may not always be a reliablke indicator. if the "360" is not stock, who is to say it isnt a 318 with a 360 manifold and carb placed on it. the best way to tell is to lok at side of block by the starter. then look under driver side head on front of block this should give you all the info you need on the engine.

Thanks ED3 and Eric! I took a wire brush to the drivers side of the block and uncovered the number 360. So i guess it's definate.

take care

You can also go buy the harmonic ballancer as the 360 will have a counter ballenced weight
