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

Hi Terry,

Any way of determining the final drive ratio from the engine number?

Thanks
Chris

Chris,

no, just that it is a manual. The 998 is normally fitted with a 4.22 diff

Thank you!

I’m going to transplant a 1100 into the moke.
I’m told the 1100 originally came from Leyland Van.

Did the vans have have different ratios?

Is it worth switching the 4.22 intro the new engine?
I’ll be doing all my driving around town, no highways, so would like to make it a nippy as possible..

Cheers

Hi,

it is likely the 'Leyland Van' would be a Mini Clubman style Panel van so the diff ratio would be for 10" wheels, probably a 3.7 diff so you will need to replace the pinion and crown wheel to use it with 13" wheels or you will be at the opposite end of the scale to Nippy. :)

I have a 1100's with 4.1 and 4.2 and for around town the 4.2 is a lot more fun.
