Forums General Counties Cars Discussion A70 Engine serial number Reply To: A70 Engine serial number


Hi Peter,

I too am interested in Engine serial numbers. These for my Austin 16 BS1.
I’ve had the car almost 30 years and for the first time now have the engine out. The engine is a BMC Replacement unit with: ‘BMC Replacement. F69956’ on a plate on the side of the engine.

I also have another engine that I bought about 15 yrs ago. I think it may have been a government surplus unit. It was bought as a refurbished unit and it’s condition supported that. That engine is different in some details and it bears an Engine serial No. stamped into the block. ‘1B 4697’

Can anyone enlighten me with information of any kind regarding the Serial Nos. of these Austin engines please?
