    Found a Job Rated Dodge with a poly-head engine in it today.
    It's got a one-piece windshield, if that's an indicator of the year.

    What engine displacement would this be?

    Look for the 'use code' stamped in the block.
    First question is whether it has a separate valley cover or if the intake manifold seals everything.
    A separate valley cover indicates it is a Hemi-based poly and the id will be found on the top front of the block, ahead of the valley cover. The other will indicate an A series engine (like a 318) and the id will be stamped on the front of the block just below the head gasket on the driver side.
    The Hemi-based poly id numbers are on my web site.

    TR Waters has posted pics of truck hemis & Polys with the use code there also.

    I went back today and forgot to look for the code on the engine.
    It's NOT a 318, that much I know (separate valley pan under the 2bbl intake)

    The block doesn't have the extended bellhousing, if that helps further.

    Thanks,
    -Brad
