You want the other letter and numbers. Like V1010CTX as an example. The ctx is the suffix code.

Not aware of any site to find that number. Could be a replacement block or a crate motor block.

THe letters/numbers you need but can't see are gone.
The ones you do see are obscured and not as bold.
If you clean real good above your numbers and use a magnifying glass you might see what you need.
