Thread: Engine number plate

    Engine number plate


    Was not expecting to see a plate riveted here when checking my engine number. Is this normal? It does not match the engine number on the V5, so at a loss as to why it has been plated over. The format is also different. Any ideas?

    It's a re-con or rebuilt engine usually done when the spec is changed i.e larger capacity so the letter code relates to the spec of engine

    Cheers Mike, that makes some sense as it is supposedly an 1850 engine, but does not look like V5 has been updated.

    I believe even vw did it when they had crank cases for certain spec and were short of another they would replate the engines
