Default water pump pad

I took the water pump off dad's roadster to fit a leakless kit, and this was stamped on the pad. Any ideas what it means?

The part # for the cylinder head is A-6050. Water pump is A-8501, so no help there. Are Australian part #'s different from American? Do you have an original Australian Model A parts list? I'm looking at an American parts list.
Hope your new leakless seal works OK.

Mike, the R/H part numbers are the same as the L/H numbers. If a part is specifically for R/H drive application, things like steering box, bell housing, petrol tank etc, the the prefix used is AF-xxxx.

Dave: Didn't know that. Thanks. I'm looking at a Ford parts price list copyright 1931 and NO listing for AF prefix parts. So AF prefix parts books must only have been distributed by Ford in R/H drive countries? Learn something every day. mike
