  • Engine value/info

    I might be interested in purchasing an engine with the following ID#:

    99HB87P 101514

    Any info as to what 998 version it is and its value (it runs OK but has some issues, broken bracket, etc.) would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Mid-80s Metro 998. A+ block. Nothing special about it. I don't have data on the B87 portion. P = Carburetter crankcase and clean air package...for what that's worth.

    Can't quote a value. 998s don't bring much money in the U.S.

      Thanks for the info - that's will help in making the decision - the engine I have in the mini now has no tag and since I am fairly new to minis I don't know what it is. I'm thinking of buying a spare to rebuild while I can still drive the mini around and then do a swap this summer.

        Here's a little article I wrote some time ago that is in the Articles section of the Mini Mania website. It's not perfect, but it may help you with engine identification.
