Engine Number?

PostPost by: Peter +2 » Tue Apr 12, 2022 9:47 am

I was aware when I bought my car the engine block was possibly not the original one. Now the engine is out of the car the block number is shown as 6SM835.

This is not a numbering sequence I recognise, does anyone have any thoughts?

The block is an 701M L block with LB wall thickness.

For some reason the first picture seems to be appearing twice.
