    Hi
    I have an Austin A70 petrol engine fitted into Bristol 20 Crawler Tractor
    I am trying to date the crawler so as to apply for road fund licence
    There is no listings for the crawlers serial number but the serial number is 1.153
    which with the date stamp on the dynamo as 1953 it’s looking to be 1953
    If I can get confirmation of the engines serial number as being built in 1953 then I think I will have enough info to get it taxed for the road and to get it insured
    Although it will not go on the roads Tax and insurance is required for me to exhibit it at shows. The serial number is 1B25.533
    thanks for any help you can give

    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?
    Regards,
    Phil
