What’s the casting date on your MB-458777 motor?

Not sure how to check that. Is it on the bottom of the block with the other casting numbers?

Yes. It's behind / below the starter towards the back of the block before the 638632. It will of the format XX - XX where the digit(s) to the left of the casting date are the month and the digit(s) to the right are the date. Yours will probably be 8 - 1x

Sorry the reply is late, don't get on 503 that much. Looks like 7-26. It was obscured by gunk and some paint.
