Re: engine vin 305 or 350

010 casting means a 4" bore which means it's probably a 350. 302 and 327 shared the same casting.

v0118c60, recheck those last 3 digits. I can't find a listing for C60 or C6O

Recheck the head casting also. 3827186 isn't a good number but 3927186 is. All the 4" bore blocks used those camel hump heads. They should have 2.02/1.60 valves and accessory bolt holes.

11S134675 is the part of the VIN number for the original car the engine was in.

Have a machine shop put the short block together. They'll have proper measuring tools. Sounds like the engine has been rebuilt at least once already.
