V6 Engine Number?


Recommended Posts

Hi Folks, I am sure the answer to this question is on here, but I couldn't find it....

To try and get my LPG conversion  written up on the registration document they are asking for the engine number, which is currently not on it. I can't see it with a quick look in the engine bay.

Anyone know where it is? 2005 V6 MZ. There is a video on Youtube, but only shows the 2.4L.

 

Thanks in advance

the info should be on the inside passenger door side on the right upper column; the engine used is the 1MZ-FE for the 3L V6.

I think they mean the actual stamped number of the engine block itself?

Hello Alpha,

 

Chris is correct, I think.

 

The chassis number is on the B pillar at the front waist high.

 

The engine number is not on that plate, unfortunately !

I just recently got my 3.0 lpg conversion registered on my v5 log book to do this you have to send the receipt you was given when paying for the conversion and a letter headed note with the converters business name and address on . Now my details show as.    Gas-bi fuel. All documents have to be originals and not photo copies .

you're correct, only the engine type used, and the engine number is as @Chris.ac, has kindly researched, and posted! ;) I have a 2007 MZ G, and both video's are not like mine!

typical, lol, its definitely stamped on the engine block somewhere, its a common engine type, so a search for the engine itself will probably throw up the location.

Thanks for the comments folks.

Unfortunately when I bought the car two years ago from Newacre Cars & Conversions (i.e. at the start of lockdown and DVLA 'Working from home') I didn't receive the V5C.

After 6 months I went through the process of ordering a new log book through the DVLA, which turned up three months later. I was so happy to finally get one that I didn't notice the lack of engine number on the document.

As mentioned in a post above, I did send the purchase receipt from Newacre where they had done the conversion themselves, but the DVLA sent a letter back saying they needed the engine number, with the letter worded as if they thought a new engine had been fitted.

I have asked Paul Mckeown at Newacre for info but he hasn't replied to my e-mails.

I am guessing this is one of those things that is easy to see when the engine is undressed and out of the car.....

Try searching Google for location of engine number on Toyota 1MZ FE engine.

 

It brings up several locations including, probably, the location on US made engines.

 

It should follow that it is somewhere visible when installed in the van, otherwise there isn't much point.

 

Try half way down rhs of block looking at front of engine.

Thanks for that Google Search Idea Rojie, different words in the search engine to what I was using!! Came up with this document. Two screen shots below, first top of doc, second is the one I'm hoping for!!

Many thanks

Phil
