Stabilator Weight ID

Can anyone tell me how to identify which stabilator weight I have in my 140. The AD for inspecting the tube shows options for a replacement weight that still requires the dye penetrant inspection and another one that terminates the requirement. The logbooks only say that the tube has been replaced but not with what part number. There are no numbers visible on the tube and only a cast number in the weight itself. Any information would be appreciated.
