Weinmann type 500 brakes

Hello.

Can anyone tell me what these numbers on brakes mean?

I believe it indicates the date of manufacture as March of 1981 (1-0=Jan-Oct, N/D = Nov/Dec)

Don't tell me what "should" be - either it is, it isn't, or do something about it.

If you think I'm being blunt take it as a compliment - if I thought you were too weak to handle the truth or a strong opinion I would not bother.

Please respect others by taking the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!

I'm hoping that was a humorous post, considering the OP had "type 500" in the post title.
