Yup sounds like a Volkspares engine. I had one (for a very short time but that's another story!) and that was marked with the date of remanufacture in the same place.

Obviously before they started having problems judging by how long it's lasted.

Thanks for the info Venomous,Yeh, its lasted a while alright! Its a 2ltr cj engine.Took it out to check it all out.No oil leaks and very little end float! type 4's are supposed to last longer?but i've got to check the compression yet,fingers crossed it'll be ok,so far so good!! :bandit: :D
