Question 196? Engine Decode

I have run into a motor that I can't seem to find in any of my books, and would like some help with it.

Front pad # TI22IEKH------613133779---I have never run into one with 4 letter suffix.

Block Casting # 3855961

Date Code L 17 5, 6 or 8 can't see last number clearly.

head casting # 3933148
Date Code I-6-8

Thanks for all your help.

The letter 'I' frequently was used to represent the number '1', they look alike.
