Eaton's still in business so I'm guessing 2010?

That appears to be too far away to be part of the date code. Can you take a picture of the B-22 or E-28?

In that case, 2010 is the only thing I can think of.

Then it would be best for you to contact Eaton and find out what they have to say. Their toll free number is 800-386-1911

Date really doesn't matter on a posi unit, except maybe in a COPO. It's not judged at events.

Here's what an actual 69 gear set date code looks like. This one is mine:

Are you asking what the assembly date is on my posi? 8/69 I "think" the day is 17. My car's build date is 8/22/69. The 13 & 43 are the # of teeth. 43/13=3.31 gears which is what a BS coded rear end is.

Original poster was asking about the posi unit stampings...  NOT the gear stampings..
