    The date code is D2 7, would that be a 1977?

    The date code seems to be missing a character as it doesn't align with the suffix code.

    The corporate blue paint tells me it's an engine from 77 to 82.

    Are you sure you have the engine suffix correct?

    I notice it has the smaller front pad for the ID stamping.
