If all my numbers are right but go backwards on the 9N569987 to 9N561885 is approxamately 2 weeks. So then about end 2nd or begining 3rd week December? That then puts it right on cowl production date of 12B. Then if my calculations of 18  69 which is 41/2 weeks comes out to Aug, Sept, Oct, Nov, 1/2 Dec  would fall roughly into my 12B build date. Don't know if I did my calculations right but looks like begining of 3rd week on vin? Now that I'm starting to slightly figure it out with everyones help it starts to make cense. Thanks all for excercising my brain.  ;D

Lots to learn here. Keep reading & watching....Joe

So I have a 10B Oct 68 car. The code is front drivers side from what I'm reading, correct? Is it on the top of the flange, or the bottom looking from underneath. Is it visible with the tank in the car?
