    iirc the 266 ran the oil filler off of the timing cover?

    the distributor height i would say 266/304. with the timing cover oil filler most likely a 266, though the will interchange exactly. the external dimensions are the same. the differences are all internal.

    Being that it also has a delco distributor would give it a greater chance of being a 266/304 as well.

    The original motor in my 68 travelall was a 304 and it was set up with the oil filler pipe just as in your picture even with the red paint on the bypass hose. It looks like the engine has a 'generator' as opposed to an 'alternator' which might indicate the engine is original - maybe mid to early 1960s? The hose clamps look original IH style. I don't know when IH changed from the generator to an alternator.

    More than likely, that engine is not either a 345 or a 392.

    Look in truck salvage yards. The medium trucks used 345 and 392 engines especially from the early 70s thru 86.

    441068 is the engine serial number, look just above that number for the engine model number. You may have to clean the area.
    Which vehicle is the engine in?
    If it is in a Scout 800, then it would be a 266 or 304 if factory installed.

    By the time they started putting V8's in Scout 800's in late 66 I think they all had alternators by then. Just by looking at the pictures it appears to be in a C series truck.

    You may need to use some engine cleaner/degreaser and a stiff brush as the engine size ID stamping is harder to read then the serial number stamping.

    The distance between the rear-most intake manifold bolts on a 345 is right at 9&1/2 inches. 304, and I'm guessing a 266 as well, is around 8 inches. Enough that you can't confuse the two. The 345's in the Loadstars had the oil fill up front like that.

    10 or more years ago, I was given an engine with no displacement stamps. The BB opinion was that it was an early 266.

    It had a few quarts of rain water inside. Very rusty inside. It ended up on the iron pile at the local junkyard. I still have the front oil fill tube out in a shed.

    The 266 in my 62 C120 is not stamped in the normal place above the fuel pump where we always look. It is stamped on the left side front of the block...not sure how many others may have been stamped this way, but it sure appears to be the factory stamping.
