Engines can usually be identified by a machined pad located somewhere on the engine block. It's highly likely to be covered in grime so get the rags out before you begin and give the engine a good wipe down.
REMEMBER! left and right-hand refer to the left and right as if you were sat in the vehicle facing forward, not as if you looking at the engine from under the bonnet!
