The first thing is that B engines didn't have numbers. There should be a date code on the block under the front of the valve cover.

I assume your picture is of the number stamped in the usual location on top of the flywheel housing. Using Vince Falter's site, I get September 1932. Link below for you to confirm.

The real early B's had a boss cast on the left side of the block, towards the front that was intended to mount part of the proposed vacuum assist for the clutch. Early firewalls had a ledge to mount another part of the system. This system never reached production.
