How do I

I bought my truck this last winter, and I am trying to figure out what motor is in it. Friend of mine says its not the orginal motor and the one that is in it is out of a car, because it has 2 dipstick tubes one on each side.
Thanks in advance

Hi Joe, welcome to FTF. More info would be helpful.

Year truck, etc.

Engine: count the valve cover bolts on one head and we can tell you which engine family it is. Multiple dipstick locations makes me think immediately of the Windsor line. You can find them in the block, oilpan and timing cover.

a pic would be a big help.

Year would be a big help.

i assume 8 cylinder.

Not to be ignorant but could one of those dipsticks be a trans dipstick and the other engine oil?

That's a 351M/400 (8 vc bolts and water neck loc). That is swapped in because it's about 7 years too late. Probably originally had a 460 in it and PO probably had 351M/400 lying around when the 460...and since it was bolt in (kinda) he got out of it as cheaply as possible. The 2 dipstick location is typically a tell-tale of a 2wd engine (out of car or truck) into a 4x4.
