It looks like that VIN would have engine numbers, 6129001-6129293. Tony.

I think those number ranges are for a sporto engine (911/61 engine type). The 2.4 liter 911T with MFI , engine type 911/51 will have engine number range 6120001 to 6124478.

vnm007,

You got TWO correct answers to your question.

9112110114 decodes as:
911 = Vehicle model (911 group).
2 = Model year 1972.
1 = Engine type 911T-E.
1 = Body version Targa
0144 = Sequential number.

The engine type 911T-E is the designation for 1972 or 1973, 911T, 2.4 l (2341 cc, 140 hp, MFI). The engines can be either type 911/51 for USA 4-speed or 5-speed equipped or type 911/61 for Sportomatic equipped.

If the engine is type 911/51 then the range of engine numbers are 6120001 to 6124478 (4478 total).
If the engine type is 911/61 then the range of engine numbers are 6129001 to 6129293 (293 total).

These engine numbers decode as:
6 = Engine designation, 6-cylinder unit.
1 = Engine type, 911T-E (1972 or 1973, 911T 2.4 l [2341 cc], 140 hp, MFI).
2 = Model year, 1972.
0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 for engine type 911/51 for manual transmission; 9 for engine type 911/61 for Sportomatic transmission.
xxx = sequential number.

The transmission types used with each engine type are:
For 911/51 are 915/00, 915/01, 915/02, 915/03, 915/10 and 915/12.
For 911/61 is 925/00.

Transmission numbers decode as:
7X2xxxx;
7 = Transmission for 6-cylinder.
X = 2 for 4-speed, 3 for 5-speed, 6 for Sportomatic 925/00.
2 = Model year 1972.
xxxx = Sequential number.

Sources: Spec book – 4220.20 (X/73); Service Information USA Model 1972, (IX/71); Factory Workshop Manual 4805.20, Vol IV, Group 3, revision XXXV.

Best,
Grady

I'm looking at buying an engine and the seller just gave me the engine number as he's not sure if it's a 2.7 or 3.0...

OE 320146S

Does that mean anything?

Thanks guys

that's not a proper number. should be 7 digits...all numbers for a 2.7 or 3.0 up to 1981. For the 82 and 83 3.0's it was 8 didits... 2 numbers 1 letter and 5 more numbers.

Engine number Range for . . .

Seems like you guys on this thread might know how to answer my question. Bought a 2002 C4S with a bad IMS bearing which F'ed up the engine. I brought it to a "rebuilder" and didn't write done engine number. I'm worried I may not get MY engine block back. My vehicle's VIN is WP0AA29942S623580 - Can someone tell me the Engine number range for it? Is there anyway to know if I got the "matching" engine block back? I don't know if the newer cars can be deciphered like you guys did with these older one.

Thanks!

Which brings us to the next mystery engine # from a 1973 1/2 T with VIN #9113112067 and engine # 6133169 type 911/91. PCA says it's not the correct eng. # I've been told but I can't confirm that because I'm in Puerto Rico and they won't give info out unless you have a stateside address/phone #. A friend of mine in the States actually got the info over the phone. I believe it is the correct # as there are so few of these out there. Any ideas? Thanks.

type 911/91 starts at 6133001 <> 6136092
6133169 is # 169 out of 3092 thus very early
9113111001 9113112302
9113112067 is # 1067 out of 1302 thus very late
to match the engine should be in the 61354xx range

smooth,

I find it offensive that PCNA doesn’t respect Puerto Rico as USA.
If you have a problem with them not responding, please tell me. I’ll make them understand.

Best,
Grady

JRBennett - Thanks for the Info. I'll use that when I pick up my disassembled engine. I asked that he not put anything back together or crate anything so I can carefully inventory the parts. May I ask where you got the information?

Thanks again!
