All those #'s are just casting #'s. That box and cover were used for many years.

There's a stamped number on the pad on the cover which tell us the year at least.

352 is the day, after that will be one more # which is the year.

They all fit, just put the right pitman arm on and go.
But the Z box was a whole turn faster.

See David Pozzi's site for more info.
