That last comment is certainly true - there were a ton of Motorhomes with 413s in them.

Casting number from multiple sites indicate it is a 1964 361 or 383. Ten different sites can't all be wrong, but dundee seems to have found stamped numbers elsewhere, which do NOT match up with any other stamping numbers. That's why I was asking for a full engine shot, there is just no way it could be a coincidence that another brand V8 could have the same casting number as a Mopar, and it isn't a Hemi, small block, or A block, I checked all those for the same number without success. In Polaraco's picture of a 413, the RB block has the stamping on the top edge of the intake valley of the block, the B blocks are to the right at the same angle as the head (on the driver's side, of course).

I have a shot with more of the engine in it. Having a hard time keeping the pics small enouth to upload. The yellow line on the pic points to where the dizzy goes and the pad just below it is where those numbers are stamped. I'm stripping most of the engine to get the old paint off to repaint it. I can't see any numbers on the other side at all . maybe once I get it all stripped and cleaned I will find something. Someone said the Canadian engines were all painted red as this one is. Do you know if it was a certain color of red

Seems to me the 361's were silver on both sides.  The canucks know better than I do.  I never recall seeing those wire looms on the 62 domestic ones.

If you look in your pictures, yes, it is a 361 or 383, the numbers are under the paint and it is on the opposite side of the block on the flat pad on the same angle as the driver's side head is on. If you look at the intake manifold gasket mark on the right side of the head that looks like a triangle and the water pump thermostat inlet, right between that spot is the pad.

Here's another pic from the top. It  doesn't seem to have the triangle piece on it and there are no numbers there. It is definitely a mystery and doin my head in.

OK, this is either a 361 or a 383.  Steve posted pictrues of an "RB" motor; they have the flat pad as shown in his pictures.  You will notice that your motor does not have that - therefore it's a "B" motor.
 


My problem is I don't remember where the ident pad is on those, and I even went outside to look at my 400 - another B - to look!

Thermostat housing, sensor location to the right for the water temperature,  between it and the head is another machined flat spot where the stamped numbers will be, there is the top right water pump housing bolt boss at the top of it, also. Now, if there aren't any numbers stamped there like the ones you showed before, the block surface has been deck machined and they got removed, which does happen. You may be able to get some shadow marks with some 600grit sandpaper on the surface, but if more than about .020 was removed from the block it won't work. Only other way to tell for sure which engine it is, since the361 and 383 share the same casting numbers would be to remove a head and measure the bore, 4.125 for 361 and 4.250 for 383.

The "triangle" I was talking about was the forward most intake manifold bolt hole, the orange line of paint and the front head to block point of the valley pan and a triangle point for location.dana442011-02-10 15:04:43

I like the red engines... some people say the 361 was about the most durable Mopar V8 ever made. I guess it was way under-stressed for all that beef.
