1997 f250 7.3 serial number

Would anyone happen to know how to figure out what year the motor is from the engine serial number 74j u2u 102698. The truck is a 1997 but I'm having the problem with the hpop losing prime while it sits for more than 2 days. its starts but dies and then restarts and runs great. I think it has a earlier motor in it. just looking for some advice. thanks in advance

The only earlier motor would be a 96 or 95. Post a picture of the HPOP and fuel bowl and it can be identified.

The motor itself is the same.

My understanding is that 1997 engine numbers start at 375549.

Yeah, my Cali 97 is 444023. That 102698 is an early one (94 and 95 went up to 187099) and should have the HPOP with the integral drain check valve and IPR with the edge filter. If it has a 97 HPOP on it that could be the reason for the drain down. Cheers!
