How long have you had this problem? Those numbers mean nothing with what year it is. It should read there in a D* or E* with the * being a number. D= 70's E=80's. Unless its an aftermarket block.......Those numbers just don't look familiar to me at all. Either way you need a 157 tooth flywheel......it is a manual trans correct??

Well damn your right wow now i see it corectly so that'd make it 87 and i put a flywheel for 89 is that a big diffrence?


Thanks guys, for all your help and support this solves all my problems, what i thought was 3113 which didnt make since at all to me is acually E7TE which means its a 87 truck engine so i just ordered a ring gear to put on the the flywheel to get it going i made sure that this ring gear fits an 87 truck so i should be all set and all my problems are solved thanks again for your generosity!!

the act that its an E7 block doesnt mean that its out of a truck, or that iw was made in 87...

it just means that 87 was the year that the casting was designed. that block could be out of a 90 for all you know.

the 89 flywheel should be fine, as long as its a 10.5". and replacing the ring gear... dumb

just get a new flywheel
