Chassis and Engine ID (Sorry)
« on: February 06, 2019, 06:08:05 PM »
Hi All

New Moke owner and I would please like to ask for assistance in deciphering the chassis
and Engine Number.
The compliance plates are missing, and by the Rego stickers in the window, last registered in NSW in 1996.

Chassis: 018FOR1M09170xx
Engine: 99H860AJ1H15xx

Thanks a lot
Chris

Hi,

The Moke is late 1976 or early 1977 build(up to March), came with a 998 engine, 4 speed gearbox and standard trim.

The engine number is is a pretty basic issue 998 engine, with 4 speed synchro gearbox. If you want more of a breakdown of the letters on the engine I could go find a book that explains them. :)

Hi,

details from John Sneddon's book Australian Mini & Moke.

A 998 that complied with ADR27a for vehicle emissions in 1976with Carby/crankcase ventilation. It is high compression engine but no figures are provided and the distributor was set up for regular leaded fuel.

Going by other engines of the same period you are probably looking at 48BHP @ 5000rpm and 51ft/lb @2500rpm
