I had the motor changed in my truck. Want to know how can I tell if it got changed or just

match or not?

The numbers are on the back of the block which I doubt you can see with it in the truck. You could pull the valve covers and check the head casting numbers but if it was just a short block replacement they would have used your old heads. Kinda hard to tell.
