I have a 85 Dodge Ram 150 with an engine ID of T (318/2barrel). When ordering parts from Jegs. They asked if the engine is a polyshere, small block LA or a small block magnum. How can I tell?

A Pollyshere 318 was found in many 1950 to 1960's Dodge, Plymouth, and Chrysler vehicles.

It's a small block V-8 that has "DOME SHAPED HEADS"....So my guess is you don't have a vintage 318V-8...

If you told them it was a 1985 318/2bbl. engine why would they ask that. (Unless the engine was replaced).

It's going to be an LA.

The LA engines are a family of pushrod OHV 90° V-block gasoline engines built by Chrysler Corporation and factory-installed in passenger vehicles, trucks and vans, commercial vehicles, marine and industrial applications from 1964 through 2003.

You'd know if it were a Magnum.
