Default engine identification

How can I ID the 3.0 in my 98 Ranger? The engine was swapped, but I don't know what year it is. It makes a difference on the cam sensor and spark plugs.

I kind of figured that, but where on the block are they, I can't find them.

Typically there is an ID tag on one of the valve covers or on the side of the block opposite about where the oil filter would be if it were reversed.
