If Joe Maurer has not seen this already, contact him here on the Stak. He has access to Stover production records, which will tell you build date and to who was the original purchaser. In the meantime, under the working side flywheel, cast into the block, should be a casting date. Stover cast their blocks and let them set outside 'to season'. This allowed the block to exhibit any casting flaws, and usually, if good, the engine was machined and built within a year or 2 of casting, sometimes sooner.
