Thank you for the pic.....much appreciated

Is it correct that the BE rears, the casting dates would be relative close to the stamp date.

I looked at one recently and the casting was B28 and the stamp was BE 0608 -

I'll let others with more knowledge speak to what is "normal" relative to cast date vs stamp date. My housing was cast the last couple of days of April so about 9 weeks apart.

I ask because the rear side of this housing was painted orange so don't want to duplicate if it was part of that paint job.
Also curious what the "58" represents above the cast date tag on the housing. Anyone know?
R68GTO: You are correct that the u-joints were held by straps & bolts for the '69 model year rears. The rear of the axle housing painted orange and the orange dots on the axle flange were done later by an owner as the dots are holes in the rear brake drums, (rear drums were probably painted orange also).

Started working on the wiper motor today among other things. Anyone tell me how to decode this tag? Seems to be an original foil tag that is on the wiper motor housing. Covered in black paint...used some acetone to get to the printing.
