Engine number

Post by serieslandy65 » Fri Jul 14, 2017 11:31

Hello on my 1986 I have been looking on the registration form for its engine number and after translating from Greek to English one that reads 'machine engine' I thought this might be the engine number (0000 102271) but every other engine number I have seen has letters in it. My question is is this an engine number or have I got the wrong number. I can also not see anything on the document remotely resembles an engine number I have seen on other peoples posts. Any help will be greatly appreciated

Hi Rory. Our Portuguese came in from Crete and has a Greek log book. Our engine number is by AP.KINHTHPA and it is 12 lines down on the side with the owner details on it.

Hello guys,

my Moke was also Greek: the motor number was right on the papers:

Hi thanks for the replies but after scanning mine I cannot find 'AP.KINHTHPA' any where on the document, mine is a Cypriot document and that number (0000 102271) is the only one on the document. I will compare it to see if the number under the same title corresponds to the engine number on another car. I still cant see how this is the engine number since no one else’s is like that. Thanks again

Rory

Hi Rory. Might be worth contacting The Moke club Membership Secretary, to see if he can put you in touch with any members in Greece, who may be able to help you.

Is the registration document from 1986 when the car was first registered or is it more recent?
The engine could of been replaced at some point with a reconditioned unit. They often have a non-factory number on them.
