TPA: Truck suffix codes aren't all on all databases. If you have any more ID questions you can look here for more help.

1992 350 truck, 210 hp, RPO L-05, TBI

If this is correct, the date code should be late 1991 to 1992. It should be a 1-piece rear main seal block. Heads could have been changed but would have had swirl ports like the c/n 14102193 head originally.
