I'm working through my now very small list of jobs left to do on my BT7 and need some advice on batch numbers please. I know from the Heritage Certificate that the following are all correct and match the car;
Chassis number, BT7L19006 Engine Number 29E-RU-H/5316 Body Number 18801 Gearbox 3088
I have the original chassis plate but unfortunately the original small rectangular plate containing the body number and batch number is missing.
Does anybody know how I can locate the Batch Number? and also the dimensions for this plate so I can make up a new one if I can successfully locate the number.
Size is the easy bit - see below for my batch plate from my BT7.
Unfortunately I am quite a bit earlier in chassis sequence so no help there. I suspect getting the batch number may be more difficult as, from what I understand they do not sequentially follow the chassis number. What about the BT7 registrar?
When you are a member of the Austin-Healey Club UK Mell Ward can help you. She is the UK registrar for all Austin-Healey 3000 and I am sure there are cars recorded which are built close to yours. Mell can give you the Batch Number of these. Her e-mail is: email@example.com Cheers, Josef
Hi all, just heard back from Bill regarding my batch number and he is pretty sure it would have been 3101, apparently all the cars around my chassis number have this batch number. Thank you for all the help.
Sorry, I am at a loss. Apart from thinking that the "N' refers to Column change and the "H" High compression, but this does not help you i.d. the vehicle it was from? or indeed if it is suitable for your needs.
I think I can help. Its an engine of an Austin A95. The short block should be the same as the 100/6 one. I would buy it when the price is ok. If you don´t like it, send me a message and I will take it. Cheers, Josef
