72 till 76 are fitted with the same oil pump...

BUT from the outside, it looks exactly the same as the older ones (several variations on these as well...), you'll need to look inside to see the diffs...

As a quick check, if it's got the wide slots breather tower, .512 wide from memory, it's a post 72... But you can only measure it proper when its apart...
