I have a very informative writeup in the knowledge base on the TH700R4 transmission.
MD8 is the automatic overdrive transmission RPO number, nothing more.
Those other numbers are casting numbers, nothing more, and there is little or no information on those, as those particular parts were used for several years.

The identification stamping pad will tell all about the transmission in it's original form. If by some very odd chance the manufacturing identification decal is still attached and readable, this will also tell the original vehicle it was installed in, but there is little chance of this.
