Hi Group,

I just read the post about the fuel solenoid and he mentioned he has a Datsun A12 and I have read about Datsun A15 motors that work for the Morris.. I have one that I got in a box (complete engine) that I would like to identify. What are the markings that you look for?

Look forward to any advice that you can share.

I have a Datsun A12 engine that I am preparing for installation in a Morris.

High on the right hand side of the block towards the rear there is a panel stamped with the engine type (eg A12, A15 etc) and adjacent to it a separate panel with the engine number.

The Datsun 1200 engine is a very popular upgrade in Australia.

Hi Stephen,

This is exactly the information that I was after! What a great thing this forum. I really appreciate your response.
