Default Torque Converter question

I have two torque converters from a 4r70w, one is from a 2004? 2wd mustang and one is from a 1999 4wd mountaineer.

Is there a way to identify which is which?

One has numbers on it which are 2-04-15-99-82a and I don't see numbers on the other.

I am putting a 4r70w in my bronco with a 205 and also need to know what the correct flywheel is, I also have the motor that the trans came from which is a 99 Mountaineer so I could use that one. I might also swap that in at this time too.

The motor that is in the Bronco is believed to be the original but I have not checked into that.

I would need to see them to tell if it is a part number, machining or an orgin date. Is the number lasered into the TC, or is it on a sticker? We made all the 4R converters in house here in Livonia so I should be able to reference them fairly easily

It is lasered in. They look identical but I wonder if there any differences I have not noticed like stall or anything else possible.

The other does have numbers etched into it also which look like 3-85-23-94 or 96-724

I think the two numbers before the last three might indicate year, so the first one I identified would be the correct one from '99.

Does that seem right?
