Engine Identification

Need some help, I am trying to find out where the engine ID number is stamped on a Oldsmobile V8. The engine is in a boat with a Berkeley jetdrive. I am guessing that the engine would be 70's vintage. Need the info to order some parts.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks ahead of time!
