'68 Z/28 engine. 2 or 4 bolt main?

There is a '68 Z engine posted in the photo ads today. It has 2 bolt main caps. I had a '68 Z back in '71. It had a CE replacement short block with 4 bolt mains. Were the "MO" blocks 2 or 4 bolt? I know the "CE" block was 4 bolt because I went thru the engine before putting the complete drive train into it a '72 Vega in '75.

For some reason my memory is saying 2 bolt. He has the wrong intake there for an MO motor.

I noticed the intake was for a '69.
