Most likely it's either an Alpha 1 Gen 2 or a Bravo 3 (dual prop).

If your raw water pump is in the drive it's an Alpha. It it's belt driven it's a Bravo.

1997 2400 SCR
5.7 Vortec / Bravo 2

The serial number should tell the model. As stated water pump on the engine is a Bravo. Dual counter-rotating props is Bravo III.
