    Which of these is the newer and older crank? I'm working on converting my 73 cj5 to an SM465

    The crank on the left was only used a couple years, maybe '70-'72?

    The 360 of course did not come stock in the 73 cj5. Really just trying to date the engine
    Has block #3195528

    On the heads the date is cast. well at least on my 304 and 360
    Also the left side valve cover (if original) has a tag that tells you about the engine.
