It wasn't me , I didn't do it.

On the side of the block near where the coil mounts, are some numbers.
Unleaded engines have the prefix 86 DA ( XF ), leaded ones have 84 DA ( XF ) and earlier. So 83 DA are XE blocks. Both the XF blocks have a one piece oil seal and early blocks have a rope oil seal.
