Is it on the intake itself or on the intake surface of the block?

you might check out the bonusbuilt forum - Canada did their own thing on vins

http://bonusbuilt.com/forum/index.php

the date stamp in the us only works on 48-53 flatheads and is located on the passenger side rear corner of the intake flat. If the engine was rebuilt it may have been shaved off and is therefore missing. Some rebuilders attached a tag, some didn't.
