The sticker on my oil pan was erased, I believe that has the serial number of the motor on it. Not sure though. How can I find out what the actual year of this motor is. Getting parts at an Auto parts Store is sometimes tough because that's the first question they ask.
I have the 5.7 MX (350 cid} GM in my '98 Prostar 190.

you should be able to identify from the 8 digit casting code on the block (left side when facing the front of the engine) close to the alternator (at least that's where it is in car/truck engines).
