These numbers are made in the housing during the casting process. These numbers
can be depression or can be raised.
numbers can ONLY identify the series of gear box. In some cases (Saginaw
for example) they are one of the only forms of identification. But in
most cases the casting number does not help to identify the gear box.
a number or letter stamp and a hammer are used to make an impression in
the cast iron or aluminum housing, or on a metal tag pop riveted or bolted
to the housing or cover. The stamp number usually starts with the same numbers
as the series number.
