help finding serial number on transfer box

I am attempting to find the serial number on my transfer box, to ensure that it is original (for import purposes). I have read that the serial number is on the rear face below the circular PTO take-off cover to the left of the park brake drum, however, this is ALL I can find on the rear face. Any help is appreciated!

From Ashcrofts site:

From 50 seconds onwards are the "later" t/boxes, which most probably are, I've never seen an early one yet

The serial number will be stamped in one of 2 possible places, either on the bottom left of the main casing or on the earlier vehicles right at the bottom of the left hand side face of the main casing obscured by the exhaust pipe in which case you will need a knife (to scrape the muck off) and a mirror. You are looking for Eg. "28D123456E", we are interested in the first two and the last, i.e. we call this a "28E". Please have a look in the LT230 Technical Section to find a list of Serial numbers / Ratios.

Product Options
A friend of mine runs a land rover / range rover specialty repair shop. Based on his experience, they are capable of stopping anywhere, anytime, at any cost.

I don't know about the brakes, only their unreliability.
