got in trouble for posting in new members...sorry
My name is Simon..
I work as a efficientcy expert for the marine world and have taken time off to build my childhood dream car, the AC / Shelby Cobra (depending on what side of the pond you're from). I've done a turbo build and have almost completed her in 4 weeks...
I decided that Ol' Shelby would turn in his grave if I was to put a chevvy, Rover or Jag motor in her, so I bought and rebuilt a 351 Windsor, 408 stoker Engine 490BHP, 480 lbs Torque..
I do not know the donor vehicle, or how old the block is..... at all.
I've had a really interesting time rebuilding her and getting her up to scratch..
Problem is that when I put her in my Cobra replica I have to have the correct engine numbers for the English (England) white coat men before I can legally drive around.
Now, I've read all that I can about engine identification and I must say that it is as clear as mud..
Can anyone tell me please,
Where do I find the Engine identification number?
I assume from the literature that I have read already that this number will tell me what year the engine is as well..
