    72 1 = 72nd day of 1971. Or March 13th, 1971.

    As for the other number/letter, I can only assume it pertains to shift, etc..

    I believe the 5044756 is the GM Part number. Quite common motor for cars with recessed wipers. Most, if not all GM lines used this motor.

    72=day of Year Manufactured.
    1=Year Manufactured, 1971
    4B=Delco internal plant code for quality control, probably plant/line/shift.
