I have a 96 4x4 with a knock and found a jasper engine locally for 200$. How do I find a stamp or engine code on the jasper to make sure it will bolt right up into my truck?!? Truck has VIN code, but not sure jasper has a stamp to make sure it matches my motor?

Just personal opinion here. I wouldn't touch a Jasper rebuild, especially a used one. They use the cheapest parts available to build them and they don't seem to to last very long. A used original GM with 100K on it will last longer.
You also have to take the word of someone selling a used rebuilt on how many miles are on it.

Yeah I have been doing some research. They don’t look like great motors. This one I think has around 40k on it. And it’s only 200 obo. I’m not completely sold on it yet.
