Hi all, Been a while so apologies for jumping back in with an info request... As mentioned in the past I've a 1990 defender with the non turbo Mazda SL35 engine conversion. Spent the last year emigrating to Portugal, brought the defender with me to register here however for the life of us we can't find the engine number for inspection. Checked the manual for location and still no luck.... Please anybody with experience of this engine or advice throw me some suggestions haha
Hello, I have recently found a an early LHD Suffix B Range Rover which I intend to buy and restore. I have been checking it's VIN and and engine number to make sure that it's from that period but they are puzzling me. 1) VIN - 35802759B I have checked on range-rover-classic.com and it says that LHD Suffix B cars that were exported have VINs starting from 358-03228 to -05837. Why does mine start at 358-02? I checked the Suffix A numbers and they begin from 358-00746 to -03227. Could it be a Suffix A? 2) Engine Number - 35509970B w/ 8.5:1CR I'v been searching the engine number directories online and the only engine that I can find with a 8.5:1 CR was used on Rover P6 3500 autos, however the engine number suggests that it is from a Range Rover. Was a distinction made between those blocks designated for the P6 and those for the Range Rover at that time or could it have been that Range Rover blocks were fitted as standard into the P6? Anyone have any thoughts? I just want to make sure that numbers match before I make the purchase. Thanks! Manolis
