    Easiest way is look at starter position. A 200 has a high mount, three bolt starter. The 250 starter is low, approx even with oil pan rail.

    Fifth digit of VIN is T if 200, L 250.

    250 has 4 bolt water pump...200 has 3 bolts. Late 200's have low mount starter same as the 250

    That didn't happen until the '80s and are not directly interchangeable with the early 200.
