I'm to pick up a 1970 beetle convertible, not sure that engine is original. The engine # reads B 5022113 Its a single port, generator,pict 30 carb motor.The chassis #1502305293  dated 12/1969 Everything appears stock,but I'm confused about engine ID. Any feedback out-there?

From the production date and VIN it appears to be a 1970 Standard vert, but the engine seems to be out of a 1968 if that "B" is actually an "H".

Thank you for reply, The prefix  letter is a "B". Which after looking into the forum, it seems the B 5022113 block maybe an unfortunate draw on my part. Is it possible that this is a bus engine as the forum refers?
