I am pretty sure they went to smaller casting pad by the head by 1980. Yours being the long pad I would be pretty confident it’s a 72 block. I see it’s a 4 bolt main block with the 1/4 inch fitting above the timing chain cover.

I live in Idaho Falls although I am currently working out of state, but will be back in 4 to 6 weeks for the summer. My truck is waiting for some love, would also like to meet up with some other members. Sorry for the short hijack.

This is a sweet find, especially the motors if they turn out to be the correct date code for our trucks.

Let us know when you're back in town and we'll plan a little 67-72 truck party.
