Hi Ron,


Are you the original owner?
As an individual you can only see if it is registered, but you posted your serial number so hopefully Rob here on the forum at the distribution center will respond back and give you the info. It needs to be a distributor to look up all the exact details.

I am not the original owner. The engine was registered in 2010 by the builder, Chris Desmond

Hi Phil,

I don't believe this is possible. This is usually a distributor level function.

Roger is correct; In the future please contact your distributor for the engine manufacture date. You can do this by emailing your local distributor or a local independent Service center (who can forward the request to the distributor).
In the meantime:
4418967: March 2005
5645009: May 2005

Hi Rob,

I have owned the engine for about two years, when i purchased it, it had completed 147hours, it now has 211hrs on the clock.

The manufactured date makes the engine 21 years old. Is there anything i should be looking out for cus of its age???

Thank you so much for your contribution to the site, you are a mind of information buddy

Regards
GT

Thanks Gary,
That really depends on how it was operated and stored.
If it has been operated properly and well stored at min you should change the fuel pump if not already done. THe original Pierburg was a great pump but after 20+ years the diaphragm and seals will be suspect.
You should change the rubber hoses if not already done.

Internals it is probably OK but check the magnetic plug and oil filter or you can yank a cylinder or borescope to be sure.

Check the Service bulletins: I ran your serial number and have attached a checksheet.
That engine had a stator replacement SB; gently separate/expand the shielding around the red wires going to the ignition modules and see what color the insulating sheath is: red is bad and the stator must be replaced. Black is OK.

I am sure to have missed some items so please chime in....
