No, pretty sure the only way to see those bolts is by having the transmission out and likely the torque convertor off.

Romeo - 6 bolt. Windsor - 8 bolt.

Also, romeo engines have 11 bolt valvecovers, windors have 13. Driverside oil fill is romeo, passenger side is windsor.

In 1997 it could have come either way




However if you had one with a 6 bolt and needed a new crank you would have had to switch to an 8 bolt crank and flywheel because they superceded all the 6 bolt stuff.
