I found the casting number on the head today, but didn't see a date code anywhere on it. Did i over look it or did it not get one?

I did not know a part VIN was on the motor or trany as they are swapped all the time.
Heck it could be done by the dealer under warranty in the first year of its life.
DMV only cares about the VIN in the windshield and on the frame and maybe the door jamb.

The cast date on the head maybe in the spring valley area. Most of them I have seen look like a clock.

I was surprised to see the stamp on the tranny. Hadnt even heard rumors of it being there. Makes me think the engine would have one as well. I've got two polished flats on my block that look like aluminum, one is stamped mexico and the other has 2 numbers a four digit on one side and a 5 or 6 on the other side. I assume that would be where the number was stamped, but my engine is a replacement. Also, pretty sure the clock shaped numbers are the numbers of the mold that was used to cast the part, for quality control purposes.
