Hi Larry:

Funny you would ask that question. 

I have obtained a similar rotor as well.

No markings on the bell housing, however, it does have all 8 terminals (which 
need cleaning) and it has in stamped numbers on the

H4     Assuming "Ham4"          
S1     don't know
JAN80  probably Manu date
I have downloaded the manual for a HAMIV assuming it is one. After going 
through all the tests and calibration procedures, it seems
to be working FB using my CDE controller.

Like you I am wondering if I am correct in the model number also and would like 
to confirm it (but don't know how either) before
ordering general parts or before rebuilding it and taking it apart to repack 
the grease.

If you find out 
how to read one 
please let me know also.

  73 fer nw,

10X# 37210, FP#-1141
SMIRK#-5177, RARS #-149
