there is no way to tell if its the original motor. but the vin. will tell you what size engine came with the vehicle.your local gm dealer can tell you which numbers and letters mean what. including whether or not it is actually an SS.

I can tell you what engine is suppose to be in it by the VIN. I can tell you what transmission you have if you can describe the shape of the bottom pan. As far as the engine that you have that is tough. The engine size should be stamped on the rear of the engine near the distributor near where the engine and transmission meet. Rectangular pan 4 speed= 700r4 Pan like the state of Illinois, 3 speed= TH400 Squared off in front, tapers on both sides to the rear and slopes up to the rear, 4 speed=4L80E These are the only transmissions that were factory installed in a 1992 C1500. If it looks different let me know. You never know what someone has installed.

just spray it a little if needed with WD-40 to help loosen then I pry it forward from behind with a good size screwdriver or similar, and it just kind of rolls out.

I would suspect at first that this will not work for this problem. On the other hand what do you have to loose by trying it? I have never once got it to work regardless of the manufacturer that I have used.
Considering the price is cheaper to try the block sealer I would at least give it a try with low expectations. Who knows - you could get lucky.
Should it not work yours is and easy one to do a head gasket on. The right fix is a head gasket and inspection of the leaking cylinder wall to make sure there is not a crack in the cylinder wall is really the right fix.
