Just purchased a 1983 uk v12 he, it was originally owned by my father feom new till 1989 under warranty it had several new engines. The joys of a leyland car!
The engine number was never updated with the dvla, and the current logbook is showing what appears to be the original.
The car has had alot of modifications, including a getrag 5 speed conversion. Twr suspension, stainless wxhaust and headers etc. One owner was a speed freak and got caught at 160mph plus he was apparently obsessed with getting this to go faster!
Now im suspicious the DVLA have the engine capacity as 5707cc. Due it having a few private plates i cant get mot histpry to find when this change happened, or if its a misprint.
However, the engine number has thrown me, its 100% this
12MR84 i have photos and its absolutely clear.
No other numbers present, now 4 very sharp people and an inspection camera have verified this?
Unfortunately at some point the build plate has gone, so that cant help…
But in the box of spares i have have 3 ECUs , im guessing that this has been bored and mapped.
The cars plate now is umo526y it was 3721pg…
Any help would be appreciated.
I plan to give the car back to my sad for his 70th birthday later this year.
