Hi,
wondering if anyone is well versed in these,

i have two of them, one is from a 68 xr7 with power disc brakes reads SMB K 8G16B

The second is from a 68 with power drum brakes and reads............... SMB K 8D22B
(both are from relatively original cars, wondering if they are as well)
all ive found is in the factory service manual a real vague generality,
anyone know what it all means?

thanks a bunch as always!

thanks again

The SMB K is the steering box type 16:1 Mustang Cougar
The numbers and letters are a date code for example;
8D22B decodes as follows
8 = year 1968
D = month April
22 = date 22
B = shift second
April 22, 1968 on the second shift
