None of those numbers mean anything for identification purposes as all of them are casting numbers, some of which (like MD8) apply to all 700 transmissions. The only numbers that would matter would be those applied AFTER the transmission was built in the factory. All of the numbers you give would have been applied before final assembly, sometimes months or years before.

There should be a paper or plastic laminated tag glued to the top of the bell housing. Some of the numbers on it would tell the year. Production codes stamped into the pan rail will also tell us. Numbers stamped anywhere else are meaningless for this purpose.
