Our casting numbers list (www.inliners.org)is a good reference but there was 
never intent to include babbit motors. I've found a couple of others that have 
additional information.

The list at http://www.inliners.org/becks/BCN2.html contains ID info for 216 
babbit motors thru 261's and also denotes whether the engine was originally 
from a car or truck. By the way, Beck's specializes in converting 216's to full 
pressure engines and can also convert a 235 to modern remote spin-on oil 
filtration. Watch for a how-to on this conversion either on Beck's tech page 
(be patient, they are just getting this site up) or on the Inliners site. 

The second casting numbers list is vast and includes a ton of additional 
reference material such as whether the motor is integral head or not. It 
doesn't have any pre-235 listings but has a huge amount of information on the 
later GM inlines like the 230, 250 and 292. It can be found at
