Your answer is partially helpful but it doesnt tell me what the engine came out of?
I found the # XXXXX in the block on the right front corner and is T0915TAL. In your breakdown of the #s would indicate Tonawanda Sept 15th but what do the TAL Broadcast code mean? Does it indicate what year and model of vehicle it would have been in?
I need the numbers that are stamped on the left rear corner for ID purposes. Much of the info you have is not any good for ID and year, etc. Most of it is stuff they use in plant for production control etc. and is meaningless for us. If you look at the first picture in the first post, those are the areas and numbers we need and even then not all of them are useful because sometimes they will use the same casting number 3 or 4 years running, so the more numbers the better. Thanks

hopefully i can look at that today and get back with you!
I got the #s off the left rear of the cyl block today and they are CYZ162805
The # XXXXX sent in the original was on like a decal on the right front valve cover, the left rear valve cover and i noticed today there was one on the oil pan all with the same # XXXXX it is
TALTXXXXXXXXX with a bar code on the decal as well. I will look tomorrow for the other #s as well. I didnt mean to be such a pain!!
I see the x's again, I will put 2 digits and then space between and see what happens!
