The number means it was built in Cleveland in 1968, Feb. 14th on the night shift.

I found this on the internet, there is all kinds of trans information on this board and the internet if you would just take the time to search for it.

You are "sort of" in luck when it comes to Powerglides. It's going to be a fine spline output shaft being the year it is (as ID'd by the code on the pan). You'll need an outside caliper, and measure the diameter of the output shaft that's exposed. a 1.82 first gear unit will be 1.145, while the 1.76 will be 1.170. IF it's a course spline output those measurements are the same. Be aware they all take the same output shaft bushing and slip yoke. OR, you could pull the input shaft out, and measure the length of it; 1.82 is 12 5/8" long while a 1.76 is 12 7/8" long. Butch/junior stocker.

Also, it's not necessarily true about 1.82 being ONLY for 4 and 6 cylinders; they were also used with the 2 barrel 283 V-8 engines. Some six cylinders came with the 1.76, if used in police-taxi cab-rough service vehicles (yeah, a cop car with a six and a Powerglide, must have been in Mayberry with Barney Fife at the wheel).
