    I've been looking for while but can really find an answer. The engine in my crossover was new in 2005 its code is WW, no idea what it is apart from the paperwork saying it was a 1600 so am guessing that it is true.

    It looks like this:

    The only thing I can think of is it came with out numbers and someone added these??

    Looks like an aftermarket code.
    VW used a 6mm letter I think.

    I am trying to get an engine number assigned to me at the moment as I have a blank case. It is a pain in the bum. It would actually be easier for me to make a number up and go to the police then try to get one issued for stamping.....

    Luckily the numbers are already on my rego, so the hassle must have all been done in the past

    That could be a police number. It should be W (for Western Australia) and a P at the end.

    You are right, there is a 'P' at the end of the numbers, it is round the corner though.

    image.jpg I'm looking at buying a bus 11/75 build but 76 release with vin no
    226 2 009 848. This pic is of engine no and the current owner translated it to
    56J000828. Does this sound like a proper code or is it a CJ ? I know it's either 1800 or 2lt. It has dual standard looking carbs.

    Check the number behind the fan shroud next to the oil breather not the one on the fan shroud to get a more accurate idea of what you have. You can swap the fan shroud to keep the number for rego and put anything from a 1700, 1800 or 2litre behind it. There are other things you can do but this should give you a start.

    There's a few other things I've got to check so I might have to go back out for a proper 2nd look.
    Cheers.

    1600 look different to 1800/2000 engines. Image a few posts up of 1600 type 1 engine. Type 4 1800/2000 also had twin carbs as standard.

    Is that the engine number or the chassis number?

    Need a photo from further back.

    That's a chassis number for a '76.

    Chassis number is on the body and engine number is on the engine.

    What does your rego papers say?
