engine capacity
« on: February 17, 2019, 09:23:22 PM »
Hello all,
I have a 8/1978 moke californian (in pieces at present). 
It is supposed to have a 998cc engine as per the 'plate' BUT the engine id has been lost/fallen off (?).
Although there is a metal tag on the engine that reads '1275'....
How do I determine the actual engine capacity???

If there is no number stamped into the block below the thermostat then it becomes a bit harder, you could try
taking the rocker cover off and looking for a number like 12G202, 12G295 (common small bore heads (998 or 1100)
or 12G940 for a big bore 1275 head.

Hey,
Just removed the rocker cover to discover the following:
MOWOG
12G940
...thus a 1275cc engine I have!  Yippee!
Many thanks, moemoke.
PS mayhaps the engine number was removed to disguise the engine  ;)

Hi,
1275 engine blocks don’t have the lifter cover plates on the back either ( unless it’s a cooper S block).
