yes and no.you can only make out either 6 or 8 cyl by the van's main vin.i will decipher for yours now.your code is gs157p26435.that translates to g10 van or 1/2 ton,6 cyl inline,90 inch wheelbase.fwd control.26435 being the vin that should match part of your engine # to be original for that van.the engine # is located on pad on rh side of cyl. block at rear of distributor.a typical # would be f1210fa.which equates to flint michigan plant,12(month)in this case dec.,10(day of month) and fa engine type and transmission installed.which you have not provided.this is the only way to tell the exact engine it came with.hope that helps.
