Are those numbers stamped on the machine pad on the front left corner of the cylinder block? Should be stamped right below the cylinder head if your looking at the front of the engine it will be on the right, just below the head. Might have to use sand paper to see it. Hope this helps you. Think the ones you gave are casting#'s on the side of the block? Whole nother ball game?
X= last digit of year
M= Plant-M= Mound Rd.
S= Saltillo
T= Trenton
K= Toluca
AAA= Engine Displacement (CID)
YYYY= Month/Day
OOOO= Engine Serial Code
