    We don't have a lot on casting numbers for the 215.

    You might follow the link above Visually Identifying a 1960's or '70's GM engine to determine what it might be. If it may be a 215, then Buick Engine Identification, by the numbers will help tell you where to find the relevant numbers.

    Thanx Bob, I go look at it again with this page in hand and see if I can identify it correctly. Iíll take some pix and see if I can send it too.

    keep in mind, if you have an aluminum v8 which conforms to the small block Buick layout
    BUT
    it has metric fasteners

    you've almost certainly got some sort of Land Rover v8 on your hands.

    British Leyland purchased the 215ci tooling in ~1964 and had the engine in production up until 2004. when they did so, they converted it to metric dimensions and displacement and they call it a 3.5 Liter.
