300 TDi engine number position

Recommended Posts

I have heard from a few people that the engine number on a 300 TDi is rather difficult to locate. With my engine stripped, cleaned and re-sprayed, I thought that this is now a good opportunity to see the number

The only number I can find (cast into the block) is on the FIP side, near the rear, and about half-way between sump and head. And that number bears no resemblance to the engine number indicated in the car's documentation.

 

So, where does one find the engine number on a 300TDi ?

RHS at the base of the breather pipe that goes from rocker cover to the engine block, on the face that points skywards. It'll probably be covered in oily crud.
