Welcome to the forum,

Look for a casting number behind the #8 cylinder, the heads are for 72 and the WT block was used every year except 64 and 72.

That is the engine unit number, it may be listed in the PHS document's billing history. There should also be a vin number next to the timing chain cover on the passenger side of the block.
