I did a little archaeological analysis to resolve a point of contention on my coupe's engine regarding the placement of the engine id tag. Up until 1985 no major restoration work had been done on the engine so I knew the tag was in its factory location at that time. It's been moved several times since then as new info came up on where it's supposed to be. I dug out the pictures I had taken of the block in 1985 and thought I could see the tag in two of the pictures. My employees probably think I'm crazy, but I brought the pictures in and put them under the zoom microscope. Yep, found the tag, on the front side of the intake manifold on the driver's side, sticking out. That's where it's going when I get the engine back--and now I have proof! Gee, I wonder if I'll have to take the microscope to the concours shows? *G*

Mine is in the same location. From all I ever seen, that's where it is supposed to be - just as you describe. My webpage (sorry, haven't been able to get pictures to directly link...yet) has an engine picture but of course you can't see the tag - it's behind the wires. Maybe that microscope can do it! Oops...I used the "front" sticker on my air cleaner. /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif

But then everyone would see how yucky my engine looked back then! I'll see what I can do.
