Engine Number

Post by Tukz on Sun Jan 10, 2010 9:01 pm

Can someone please help me!!.

We have fitted the engine from a Hijet into the tuk tuk. I am just trying to add the new engine number from the van to the tuk tuk log book. I am not sure what part I put down. My original engine number appears on my log book as:

EF444.............

So do I put the new one on as:

CB422101........

or just as:

2101..........


????????.

I did not get a log book with the van I bought and because it was never to go back on the road then I did not see the point of sending for a new one. How does the engine number appear on yours??.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Also...........

Does anyone know if you have to pay to change the numbers etc, or just send it off and get it back?.

Thanks Scott.

That's great, thanks. I can get it sent off tomorrow and then it'll be back well before it goes back on the road (hopefully).

It is a 1.0 litre engine but they are actually 993 or 970 or 997cc etc aren't they?. What do I put as the cc or would dvla find it out for themselves?.

The Tuk Tuk used to be 660cc, will this alter anything else ie MOT class or anything like that???.

If its a CB42 then I think they only make that in 993cc, shouldn't make any difference to MOT may alter tax bracket check DVLA website for tax classes but when I looked to see what tax ours was going to be it was the cheaper where as my car just falls into the upper one but you do need to fill in any info on the log book thats changing and if there isn't a box for it they don't need it.

Hi I did have my FT when I was 18 and when I got it I threw the crank three days later fortunatly a mate had a new yes new crank sat in the corner of his workshop I then swapped a load of service bits which at the staff rate was about £10 for a £40 high comp piston and blagged a gasket set rebuilt it ran it till I was offered the SRX then lent it to another mate coz his CBR got nicked he then blew the top when we stripped it down the inner end of the cam had eaten itself bright idea fron the japs hardened steel in alloy with a pissy little oil feed the bloke I got the crank off used to machine out the head and add white bronze bushes till they stopped making the bush anyway still sold the bike on ebay for £100ish quid. for a big bike it was tops used to weave through traffic on it faster than a CG I used to see often Cool

I got a letter from the DVLA. They want a receipt on headed paper from the garage that did the engine swap for me??????.
Problem is I did it myself!!, well me 'n' a mate in his garage!.

It says I could get an AA/RAC inspection done and send in the paperwork. What a pain in the ****!!!.

It may be worth seeing if you can get a automotive engineers report or SVA (£120 last time I enquired) as I asume it wasa straight drop in on existing mounts as the aa one isn't worth the paper etc. but maybe cheaper.
