Hi Folks

I bought the above engine and am presently re-building it as a spare.

Don’t know anything about the history of the engine or the reg. no. of the car it was in.   Was wondering if there was any way more information could be traced using the engine number on its own?

As I bought it it had already been bored out to +030” and the crank to +010”.

Thanks for any thoughts

Very very unlikely. What with GDPR etc, no official body will give you any contact details or what car it was originally fitted to.

But there is not much to be found out after you have checked the number, the only tricky bit may be working out if it is the original camshaft. Otherwise it is all just measuring.

sadly  these numbers were not recorded in a traceable  way  as far as i recall

it was recorded in the heritage certificate   for a car but thats searched by reg and com numbers the engine number is coincidental 

you could ask  at Gaydon but i dont think they can help

Gaydon can 'reverse engineer' a search so they can use an engine number to find out the rest of the vehicle details accordingly, but be advised - it's expensive!
