One of my friends is building a 2.0 16v vauxhall powered kit car and needs to know how many/if letters are used in the engine number. The side of the engine where the number should be is as rusty as anything and some effort is needed to make anything out. They have taken a pencil rubbing to see if they can work out the numbers, but they need to know how many there should be along with if any of them should be letters.
The original donor was a j plate cav gsi which was off to the scrappies - the only part they retain is the engine.
Any help appreciated
