Hi all,
A post on the bird board got me thinking about compiling a list of "out of car"
factory engines and that we might be able to help some of these engines find their way back to the original chassis.
So,here is the place to post those 640/641 engine serial numbers out floating around. I think serial number and last whereabout should be good.If you have an engine for sale,post in the f/s section and I will copy it to the list or you can add it.
Thanks,
John

OK, I will add this to your list, I just purchased engine case 6414103 and will keep it unless/until I find my original engine, 6414135.

Click to view attachment

It is a very clean case and I feel fortunate to have bought it for a fair price from Henry Schmidt at Supertec Performance in Fallbrook, CA. At least I now have a period correct case that is only 32 numbers off of my original case. Probably doesn't mean anything to anyone but me. piratenanner.gif

should be a 901/36 engine - very early Euro 914-6 engine for a shifter

possibly belongs to a car between 914.0.43.0015 - .0045 idea.gif

All,

I am new to the 914 World forum. I am a long time 914-6 enthusiast! I own 914-6 chassis #9140432353. It is missing its original engine and gearbox. The original motor number was 6405532. Porsche doesn't have the original gearbox number recorded. I would be interested in finding the original motor. Any help or leads would be appreciated! On the gearbox, if anyone would know around what gearbox number I should be looking for it would also be appreciated.

Thank You!

Freeman,

I own 9140432347 with engine #6400818 and gearbox #7502325, both original to the car. It's a euro spec six which explains the engine number, but the gearboxes, to my knowledge, were all the same. My VIN and gearbox numbers are 22 digits apart. Hope that helps you a bit. Welcome to the club. welcome.png

I was poking around in the barn and checked the numbers on an engine that I bought in the late 1970s to use to convert out first 914-4 to a six which I never did. I was told at the time that it came out of a 911t and it had 911 heater boxes an tin on it. The engine has been sitting under the workbench since. It is a 901/36, serial number 6405282 and located in Vermont.

THE STIG
Member DaveP could accuratley speculate, but a PORSCHE COA is a good place to start. Mine was accurate on the engine number for my 914/6. Some will say they are inaccurate. Mine was correct.
