Yep, either site has good info. Lots of times the tag is "miss-placed". First chart also tells you the torque rating which can vary from 265 to 300 for the stock factory units, up to 325 for Ford aftermarket. Happy hunting!

No small metal tag on top? That's what is really needed. You can narrow it down by the chart posted earlier if it's for a 4 cyl or V-8 (input shaft length and diameter). Those numbers you posted are just the casting numbers that would have been used in many applications.
