I am interested in purchasing a replacement engine for my 1968 D10 Sports. The engine in question has just D10A stamped in the crankcase. Would this be valid on the log book ? What is the main reason only the model number has been used ? 

Thanks in anticipation.

The short answer is no, that would not be valid on the log book. The engine must have a uniquely identifiable number so that if stolen it can be identified precisely.

There is no reason that such a number would be used, all engines would have a number stamped on them when they left the factory. It has possibly been removed by a previous owner, or perhaps a new set of crank cases purchased by a previous owner were never stamped up.

contact me directly if you would like to discuss it further.

Current bikes......1958 D5, a 77 Suzuki GT250 and a 77 Honda CB125S. I have a 74 Kawasaki KH400 and a B175 waiting for restoration. A 1980 Honda CB400N waiting for MOT.  Everyday ride is a 2011 Harley Davidson 883 Sportster.
