    I've heard of engine number for 1071 blocks beginning with a 10* number but have never seen this confirmed. Perhapse this was the case down under?

    The only blocks I do know of with a 10* are the 1100cc ones.

    10F is the BMC code for the 1071 engine but it was not used as the engine number in the same way that 12F was the code for a 1275 but wasn't the engine number prefix.

    XE is 4 speed all synchromesh gearbox but this wasn't introduced until late 1968 for the S – years after the 1071 had gone.

    Y is 1275cc!

    83950 is far higher than any UK Cooper S engine number sequence ever got to.

    Sounds like someoneis yanking your crank Bruce:)

    Have you got a picture of the engine number tag or is the numberjust stamped on the block?

    My thoughts exactly.

    Query was originally posted on the Ausmini website.

    Engine is alleged to have a 1071 crank but a block casting number appropriate to an Oz 1275S….and to be installed in an 'English' S.

    Thanks, Ian

    PS Pictures show number to be stamped on block (and drilled Rawl pins)
