I was not able to find any markings concerning the date of manufacture, Gray base, blue cylinder covers, ceramic bead insulation on the wires.

I had not found anything either. I basically had the same engine you do. The seller had it since new. Boy was it a week long cleaning and putting back together.

I haven't started cleaning yet, Mainly just testing the mechanical bits as I go.
Tonight I put new balls and washers in the pump sections and ran the engine on air.
It seems to work but I noticed afterwords that I didn't have the lubricator cap on.

I forgot how hard it is to film and hold the airline at the same time. :)

Well, you must have done something right, it's pumping water  8)  and it looks good with the new washers  8)
