I was wondering if any of your good selves could help me,
is there any book, website or other that I can get engine identification numbers information to tell me what engine is for what car and what cc & year, I am only interested in Anglia 997 & 1200 engines. I would be grateful if anyone could help. Only I have had a look at a couple of engines but not sure if they are Anglia or not.

There is no sure fire way of telling from the numbers alone. The 109E 6015 block was used for 3 different engine sizes. They were engraved from the factory with numbers on the r/h engine mounting pad with either. 105E = 997, 113E= 1200, or 109E for the 1340. But unless you 100% know that it is an original engine, the only way of telling is to measure the piston stroke through the spark plug hole or remove the sump and look at the part numbers on the crank and rods. Over the years I’ve seen blocks engraved 105E but have 1200 components etc. I also built a 1340 once I left the 105e engraving on it. So there no telling what others or even Ford have done under the exchange program for engines etc.
Cyl heads is a little easier as these were cast into the heads under the thermostat boss. 105E = 997, 113E =1200 . Use a mirror to see it if its still in the car.June 1, 2012 at 8:34 am #28222
Many thanks Ken for your reply that info is very helpful, just as an example at present on Ebay there are 2 Ford pre cross flow engines, one 1200cc and the other 997cc the numbers on them are 27306015a for the 1200cc and 273 6015 for the 997cc so would the 273 part relate to the Cortina or would this still be Anglia?

Look at the chart a few posts down.
I doubt that it is either a 997 or 1200.
Anglia’s only came with blocks cast 105E (early models) or 109E from about 62 onwards. Anything else will be from the Cortina/Escort range. Only the Cortina had a 1300/1500 pre xflow. Everything else was x flow.June 1, 2012 at 3:08 pm #28226June 14, 2012 at 8:19 pm #28279
To throw a spanner in the works, not all the blocks were engraved! I’ve had three blank ones.

My Anglia export 106E from 1962 has the chassis number 405029.
I just found the engine number stamped on the engine block left. The numbers are hard to read and I think it’s 49125 X.
Can someone tell me if this is the original engine?
