EA81 engine year?

(Have to check VIN on hatch) 4/84 532282

well, i have an 84 d/r 4wd 4speed hatchback with an obvious replacement motor. i understand that you're looking for serial #'s off original engines but i was hoping maybe someone could help me figure out what year my engine and carb are likely to be. the engine is stamped 625893, has no gold stickers on valve covers, has the two 10mm bolts on bottoms of heads, has hitachi dist, has 3 belt crank pulley and factory a/c. also, i'm used to the valve covers being the same blue as the air cleaner and mine are black, its obviously possible they were painted but it doesn't look like it - the paint is perfect (minus the effects here and there of heat and oil over 23 years!). my carb is a hitachi dcp306-12 104.
the reason i'm requesting this info is the fact that my carb needs to be replaced (upon dissasembly for rebuild i discovered parts missing inside and stripped threads throughout - damn the monkey that's responsible!) anyhow, i ordered a replacement for my year/options application and got a later model hitachi with no numbers but drasticly different vacuum fittings (no vac on the secondary diaphragm, 2 vac ports on choke pull off diaphragm, etc.). near as i can tell, i've got an earlier model engine. also, i was told that with a 5 as the 6th digit of my vin i should have a 1bbl carb.
somebody please show me where my steering wheel rolled off to!!!

I put in a newer motor a while back and was wondering what year a car it came out of. It's a EA81 and the ID says 583264. Is there any way of finding out what year it is from this number? Thanks!
Well the EA 81 was in production from 1980 to 1989. thats all i know haha somewhere in those 9 years

S/N where do you find this number i would love to contribute

Hydro lifter engine(verified by stickers nand the fact it's in an automatic trans car)
Automatic, 4wd, *high luxury* model sedan. Every reason to believe this is the original engine.
