They are very secretive about letting you know what this means. Some of the things it tells are: Application of engine,muffler type,fuel tank, sometimes tells type of equipment installed on and options requested by manufacturer and built into the engine and most importantly,the crankshaft size as many engines have 20 or more different sizes depending on the application. Sorry but I am not privy to the book explaining what numbers mean. This info may help though.
