Thanks again.
Look in the same area, possibly on the opposite side from where you say the c/n. There you should see a date code, something like E 22 9 or something like that.

If I was going to go by the suffix string you gave us (M02239VP), I'd say it was from '89 or '99. If it was '99 it would likely be a crate engine. If '89 it could be a production piece.

M02239VP: M = Mexican; 02 = Feb; 23 = 23rd day of month, 9 = year ending in 9 (or the 9 is part of the suffix code, i.e. 9VP)
