Is there a transmission tag decoder somewhere?

I have an AOD I'd like to know some history on. It has a tag, but I can't find a tag decoder in here or on Google. Can anyone help?

Here is the AOD tag info:

PKA ER1
014602 K25
F1AP AA

What I'd like to know is what year & model this is associated with.

As usual, any help will be greatly appreciated.

I have a 1989 Mustang service manual I bought a couple years after I bought my car. It has a tag breakdown on one of the first few pages of section 17 for the AOD transmision.

My question is: Is there a way to identify what year an AOD transmission was built by using the tag info provided above?

According to the tag, I will guess 1991.
But If you shoot a pic of the drivers side, whole trans, i can get you within a year most likely of the trans, what it came from, and what internals if most likely has.

I took this off of another site as an example. Don't take this as gosple however. I have seen it not add up in some cases. An example might be if the part had been previously replaced or has a wrong tag on it.

The 1st character of the prefix indicates the decade of design;

*

A = 1940's
*

B = 1950's
*

C = 1960's
*

D = 1970's
*

E = 1980's
*

F = 1990's
*

G = 2000's

The 2nd character of the indicates the year within the decade. F1 would represent 1991.

Since I have two 1991 educated guesses above, that's good enough for me. It's not terribly important to know.

I had my 5-speed replaced several years ago with a built up AOD. I had the wide-ratio gear set installed, Lentech valvebody, etc. A local transmission shop did it for me.

I was under the car this weekend replacing the extension housing gasket due to a leak and noticed the tranny tag attached to one of the upper extension housing bolts. I just wondered if the year was obtainable from the tag.

Thanks for the responses.
