There are 2 other places it is available, but as I stated, I am looking for the number on the BLOCK.
Thanks.

Again, as I said in the post, I am not sure what the replacement motor was out of. My suspicion- it is from a Tempo. This I based on the spark plugs that were in the motor and a small difference in the vacuum plumbing.

Thanks for the help.
