Casting number 2536030 is a 67-75 318, LA block. The number 318.5 should indicate it was produced on March, 18, 1975. Anything beyond that (year, make, model) is gonna be tough to trace.

actually, that casting # seems closer to a 440 casting (2536430)... my book lists 318's '67-74 as casting # 2466090, but books have been known to be wrong...

is the dist in the front or the back?

what are the head casting #'s?

supposedly, there is a vin pad along the pass side oil pan rail, at about the midpoint of the engine... is there on yours? if so, what are the #'s?

intake casting #?

all these things can be used to narrow down at least the year of the motor, if not the model that it came in... pics help, too...

No, he's right. '67-'75 318 LA block. The thing that is incorrect here is the "date." It should not say 2536430 318.5 (huh?) but it should say 2536030-318. The 318 is part of the casting number. The date I believe is on the other side of the block.

Dates look like this:

Thanks for the correction, I misinterpreted the 318.5. You are correct in saying the manufacture date is on the other side of the block. That being said, this morning I was also looking at a 318 with a casting number of 4006730. Couldn't find out exactly what is because Galen Govier's book only goes up to the mid '70's, and that's what most web sites base their info on. With some searching I stumbled across this site which contains an amazing amount of info, including what I was looking for. It even has a search function for casting numbers. Take a look, it contains LOTS of info.
