Hi everyone,

 

I've moved from restoring and finishing a 1965 Triumph Spitfire to restoring a 1983 Austin Mini 1000 City E 998cc. I just wanted to look into the engine number a bit more, I've used this website - https://www.minimani...on_Data_UPDATED and found out that it matches the V5 being a 998cc engine. 

 

My engine number is 99H997P  153089. 

 

The website above says -

 

99H/997        1980 onward A+ block, flat top pistons, economy fitment with 2.95 final drive

99H/A97P      A+ block with dished pistons, pre-A+ gears, 3.44 final drive & 12-inch wheels

 

Therefore, my engine number '99H997P' matches - '1980 onward A+ block, flat top pistons, economy fitment with 2.95 final drive' BUT what does the P mean following the '99H997'?

 

Hope that makes sense,

 

Thanks, Oli
