If the tags are on the covers yet, it would have it. Or by serial number.

   Thanks. I may go to look at one later and don't know where to find the tags. also don't have a list of serial # for reference. I was just trying to prepare ahead so I don't look like to much of a fool when I get there.  Don

If the spec # is 24300 or higher, it is a Series II. Or, looking from the crankshaft output side, bottom left on the side, will be the outputs for a oil filter, an oil filter housing, or a wonky sized plate held on by two allen head bolts. If it has something there, Series II. The very first few Series II did not have this, so go by the spec # if it's there.

Thanks Kat. I knew there was more than I could remember

If it has a big hole in the side of the block it is a series 1.
