: Where can I find the engine number?

The guide stated that it should be on the back of intake manifold above the crankshaft, but it's not there, can someone please point me to where can I find the engine number of 68 DeVille? Thanks

Its there but hard to read. Even after my block was tanked, I still can't read it. Its on the block, right on the edge where it meets with the tranny.

Alright, I'll have another look. by the way, I'll try to put a piece of paper on it and try tracing it with a pencil or something...

Here is the place where it should be. Itīs hardly accessible + a lot of dirt use to hide it:

This info is taken from the 1969 FSM but I think itīll be the same for 1968. Click on the pic to enlarge.
