Default Dating question

I have just acquired an R3MC that is next on the list of toys to be played with .

Not had much chance to clean it up and look for any numbers . Brass plate with the usual numbers on is missing . Did ST stamp there engines with a production number anywhere other than on the brass plate fixed on the cylinder ?

There is sometimes a flat behind the dipstick hole on the crankcase with it stamped on.

Cheers, Steve

Found some numbers on the engine

37187

The frosted cylinder has been replaced with one bearing the number

36846 .

so not much difference , Any chance someone can date those two numbers for me please .

It does look a bit different now though .
Sat on a trolley so I could determine the final trolley size .
