No it was not built in 1977. Back when we were doing warranty engine work on
those vehicles I knew how to read that but everything has changed and I
haven't had to use that date code in years. I forget how to interpret that.
The first seven should mean 1987. the 77.1 had something to do with day/week
or the hour built starting with 0 and going to 8736 hr of the end of the
year. I'm not sure, don't quote me on this.
