    The engine id is stamped (V8 engines) on a pad near the front of the passenger side of the block. It is near the top of the block, by the valve cover.

    The vehicle VIN (and, I'm not sure if it is the complete VIN, or just some of the VIN information) can be found in different locations depending upon year and block. Some are near the engine ID, some may be near the oil filter and some may be at the rear near the bell housing.

    I would enter the engine ID into a search engine and see if the location of VIN can be located.

    The tranny ID is usually on the bell housing, the VIN should be there as well.

    There is a VIN type # on the machined pad at the rear of the trans but the #'s don't match anything VIN like. Thanks I'll keep looking. matt

    That is the engine ID, only info about that engine.

    Enter the ID into google and see if there is any VIN location info online

    The VIN number will not be on the engine or transmission at all. The VIN was only stamped onto the VIN plate and a few different spots on the body and frame. The VIN stays with the vehicle, where the engine and transmission don't neccisarily.
