    Engine number ? on an EXT

    Hello,
    Lucky, my beloved EXT, and I have retired to Jamaica. There is something called a "fitness" inspection here. You go to the tax office, pay a fee, take the paid fee to a government inspector and present vehicle. The inspector will not sign off on fitness because he cannot find the "engine number." I have called Claude Nolan shop in Jacksonville, where I bought the good boy and they think I'm crazy. They say that there might be a part number on the engine. That same number would be on all 2004 EXT's and even their shop manager doesn't know where it would be.
    I keep insisting that the VIN, the number on the Florida title should be the number he is looking for.
    Does anyone know if there is such a thing as engine number on other exports?
    Even the Jamaican shipping company that shipped him says inspector is just being difficult.
    I am trying everything.
    Thank you so much for the information, even if it is to say that inspector must be nuts. Any explaination will do, I want to driiiive.
    Irie

    there is a casting number which will be the same for all models with that same engine

    there will be a small ground flat spot with your VIN stamped on it

    and there maybe a serial number on it if it was specially built for export

    Rest assured there is a number stamped on your engine block somewhere and it is visible. If you REALLY want to drive, then I would start looking and don't stop until you find it!
