Ford Capri engine code type

Post by antonio31 » Fri Dec 11, 2020 12:31 pm

Hello,

I have a Ford Capri mk1 2.3 V6 Cologne engine and I'm searching for the engine code type and I can't find it on the engine. Do you know where I can find it if is engraved on the engine block?

I'm refering to the engine type code, not the engine unique code (123431), like in the picture. For exemple, there are 4 codes for this engine (YY, TV 23 H, YYE, YYN).

Thanks a lot! Cheers!

Hi,
I assume that the type code is stamped in the same place on all the Cologne engines.
If so, it can be found with the engine number here:

Hello Andrew,

Thanks for your reply!

I checked that location and I can't find any number or code. I think the plate is damaged and the number cannot be seen. I will try to grind a little bit the area, maybe I can see it.

Thanks a lot! Cheers!
