    Re: Not what I expected

    Interesting article in the latest (October) edition of CKC on Gerry Hawkridge and Hawk Cars - interesting guy! I'll be fascinated to see the limited edition exact Stratos replicas when they come out...

    Re: Busso V6 engine numbers

    Hi Craig - yes that was my understanding - and I will shortly be taking my car to an MOT station to check the emissions in advance of the IVA - as I know how even a small air leak in the exhaust...

    Re: Busso V6 engine numbers

    Thanks again to everyone for the suggestions on the engine number. However I think I'll leave it as it is - at least I now have a photograph that is (just about) legible.

    Also for the endoscope -...

    Re: Busso V6 engine numbers

    Regarding improving visibility of the numbers - I've tried pencil graphite, permanent marker, oil and then heating with a paint stripper, etc etc. However the photogrph you can see is the best result...

    Re: Busso V6 engine numbers

    I managed to get a statement from Autolusso declaring my engine was sold to me from a car that they had scrapped. They dont have the V5 , nor can they recall the Reg No but I'm hoping this letter...

    Re: Busso V6 engine numbers

    Interesting point Guy about the plasticine impression. I will try that but the impression is feint - hence me mis reading the AR for AK and the "1" digits as "4's". Also if I can get a clear reading...

    Re: Busso V6 engine numbers

    Re: Busso V6 engine numbers

    Hi Leigh - the V5 might only give the last 6 numbers but on your 166 engine block there should be one of the following codes in front of the V5 6 digits : - AR 36101 for a CF3 or AR 34301 for a CF2...

    Busso V6 engine numbers

    I am gathering info (and the necessary proof) required for the IVA for the age of my engine. Unfortunately I dont have much info on the provenance of my engine - other than that it came from a 3ltr...
