Aaahh -- I looked at the VEHICLE number section, since the reference was 
to "serial" numbers. Of course, this doesn't help if you don't have the 
original engine (I don't, for example), or know if you have the original 
engine or not. At that point you might as well just look at the 
transmission itself (since it is much more likely that the engine would 
have been replaced than that the transmission would have been replaced).

Thanks, Bill
