We need more information. It could be a number of different engines. It could be anything from a slant 6 to a 440 V8.

Well i think its a d200 i know its a v8. Is the 360 a big block? And where would a vin # be located or anything that might tell me the size?

Post a photo of the engine.

First of all, if the distributor is in the back of the engine then it is a small block 318 or 360. If the distributor is in the front then it would be a big block 400 or 440. the engine size is cast into the left side of the block in raised numbers (just aft of the engine mount)
