How do I confirm my engine CC


Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to owning a Spitfire mkIV (Love it :) ).  It is registered as a 1296cc but I'm pretty sure it's had a 1500cc engine fitted at some point.  The engine number (FM4390HE) does not match the log sheet and  I'd like to get the registration details correct. Can anyone confirm that the actual engine number relates to a 1500cc Triumph engine.

Hello Ron.


Details from Rimmer website.


I think you are correct and do have a Spitfire 1500 engine. I have highlighted in red.


I'm sure a Spitfire owner will confirm this beyond any reasonable doubt.


Do not forget to inform your insurance company !!
