Is this a 2 litre 914 engine or what?

The seller has just informed me that the engine serial no. is G10827. Doesnt sound right for a 2 litre,I will ask him about the 3 bolt heads and the location of the eng. no. It is a car built in 1972, vin no.4732920753.Any further advice is appreciated?

The engine number is not complete. Should be "GA" for a 73 or 74 US-spec 2.0 motor. ("GB" would be a European motor--vanishingly unlikely--and "GC" would be a 75-76 2.0 motor. "GE" is a bus motor, and there are other G-code Bus engines I think as well.) Ask about the heads; they are one of the most expensive parts of the engine, so they are a pretty decent indicator of what the engine "really" is. Or if he has a picture, you can post the pic and get our opinions.

If it has the stock EFI on it, the throttle body will be vertical and sit on top of the manifold. I believe that all other Type IV EFIs had horizontal throttle bodies that lay next to the manifold.

Dave,
Just called the owner,he is sure it is a 2 litre,I asked about the 3 bolt head arrangement.He said yes,then the throttle body being vertical,yes,and the fuel pump being separate from the motor,yes! He seems like he is hands on.Owner spoke to Auto Atlanta,George I think who suggested that as its a 1972 year car with a 1973 vin no. the engine no.doesnt follow the accepted pattern which was established later.Eng. no.G108287.VIN No.473290753 Car built mid '72!

Model year production starts in August of the previous year. Both my current and previous 74s were built in 10/73, as was a buddy's 74. Roughly the first 1/4 of the 73 model year cars were built in late 72. I would be very surprised to see a different numbering pattern on the engine, but I continue being surprised by these cars...
