    Stolen from a reference:

    Bearing caps are usually numbered and marked with an arrow facing forward

    3" lift but mostly all stock not a scratch on it it is pristine condition amazing for being 19 years old.
    also if you are rebuilding your engine have the shop stamp the bottom of the connecting rods so if you sell it and the new owner has it rebuilt they will know that the block has been honed as not to make the cylinder walls too thin.
