This should help as far as where some information is, but all I can tell from this stamp is that it is a truck engine (T). Now granted these are US casting numbers and system, not sure where in Europe any engine may have been made for this casting number, so, what is the number on the side of the block? This Year One site has a lot of information for identification of blocks and other parts.

Personally, I have never seen a stamping like that before.

I have. . .   And yes I agree it's a truck engine.  Motor home actually.
 
The good thing about the truck engines is they have more steam holes in the heads for better cooling.  Make sure you match the head gaskets.  That is very important

Check the harmonic balancer on the engine, see if there is any writing on the front side that states something like, cast iron crankshaft counterbalance only, indicating it is some time around 1973 or newer. The site I put up gives locations of the casting numbers, might be able to narrow a little more info down, just hope that truck doesn't equate to marine application, which are usually reverse rotation engines.

Didn't some of the marine engines have counter rotation? My Chris
Cavalier's twin 318s did. Or was that accomplished as part of the
Velvet Drive. I never got to tear into them.

Most twin engine boats had one normal rotation engine and one counter rotation engine to balance out the torque and stress on the hull, kept it running straight too.

Right, even twin outboards often have counter rotation. Bigger inboards
with singles are a real pig to drive. But in Mopar marine V8s was it
accomplished in the engine or transmission, is my question. I only
worked on a few inboards summers at the marina because they had a guy
that specialized in big inboards and I worked mainly on outboards and
I/Os (the latter of which suck)

I can't say for sure how Mopar equiped boats were done, mine were Chevies, But it stands to reason that it was done the same way with one of the  engine setup to run backwards. It wasn't done by using just an opposite rotation reverse gear (tranny). It was a real PITA because everything was different for that engine, water pump, starter, etc. And to complicate things even further, some boats also inverted the engines so the front was facing rear and attached the flywheel and reverse gear  to what is normally the front of the engine. Am I confusing you even more?  What it comes down to is, if you think you have a boat engine you need to know if it was setup for standard or counter rotation. No way will the counter  engine work in an automotive application. Boat engines also endure a lot more strain than a car engine, so used ones are usually pretty beat up. Sorry, long answer to a short question.

Yes it will.  Only you'll have a 1 speed with a 4 speed reverse....

Yep, truck engine, so the next thing to do is get the head casting number and see if we can narrow it down a little more. This casting number, in looking at several casting number listings can be anywhere from 1968 all the way through 1978, even for a truck. One indicator of it being closer to 1978 is the -8, another is a harmonic balancer that shows the stamping for cast iron or external balance written on it, and the head casting number. The three colums are block casting number, head casting number, and crankshaft casting number. Enjoy,
 
Ed
