An AOD transmission question

How can I identify an AOD as to the year if there is no tag. I have heard that the 89 - 93 is "the one" to use on a non-computer car so that is the one I've been looking for to put in my streetrod. "They" say that by 89 the bugs had been worked out of the early designs, and after 93 they were "computerized". Around here, you better KNOW what you are looking for, because many wrecking yards are more than willing to sell you what they "have" if you are uninformed and don't know that it is not what you "need and asked for". Also, if it DOES have a tag, what would I be looking for.
Thanks for the help,
Steve


Just a DOS sort of guy in a WINDOWS world.

If you have ever looked closely at most OEM components,you will see what is called a "circa"{I guess}.It is a circle,with a 2 digit year in the middle like "89",and the perimeter has 12 blocks indicating the months of the year,with an arrow pointing to the month the component was molded.This will get you close to the year model it belonged to,but keep in mind that most next year models start being built by mid-year of the present year.
