The engine number is on the forward end of the block, but it might be hard to see. It can be found by VIN, but that would only match the original engine.

Thanks for the reply.

Is it on the block or should I be looking for a plate with an engraved number on the block ?

Ok ...found it !!!

It's located on the right at the end of the block next to the sump on the righ hand side ie the air filter side.
It is very hard to find and it is located right behind the dip stick.

Thanks for all your help as I was about to give up.
