need an engine tag decoded !

Getting ready to do a little restore on my 68 Ranger and I have been looking for an engine tag decoder and cant find one. Can anyone decode the following info for me?

360 68 2
8 E K 300 K

Thanks in advance!

looks like a plain jane FE 360 with 2 barrel carb.

Good truck motor, not a gas sipper, easy to upgrade to a 390 with a crank rod upgrade.

Better not to convert to 4 barrel without a rebuild and making it a 390. IMHO

Engine ID tag found on the coil bracket or intake manifold.

360 = 360 2V / 68 = 1968 / 2 = Change Level *

8 = 1968 / E K = FoMoCo use / 300 is the code for a 360 2V - VIN engine code Y / K = FoMoCo use.

* Change Level. In 1968, there were two different length pushrods used. This was a "running change" so there is no serial number break.

Pushrods: Level 1 (L/1) = 9.62" O/A length // Level 2 ( L/2) = 9.59" O/A Length.

already upgraded with a cam, 390 crank with cobra jet rods, edelbrock intake with a 600 box, electric choke. Runs awesome!

Then it doesn't make any difference what's on the tag, because that engine is no more.

well i got a tag off a 300 I bought awhile back and I figured I'd ask what it all means if it's not too much trouble.

300 68 11 (FoMoCo)
7-H N150-J
