Default vin location on engine?

I'm trying to locate the vin number on my engine and I'm having a hard time locating it ...

Can someone please tell me where it is .

Thanks

it is NOT on the Block. The block has a serial number that does not match the VIN. The head has a VIN on the very back side, next to the firewall. You will be hard pressed to see it without pulling the head out of the car.

VIN location is on the green plate on the cyl head. note other things in the pic...upper starter bolt sitting in hole, infamous ground wire on back of cyl head, main oil gallery plug, rear main seal.

Great picture Bill.

Here is a current thread on the same topic.

The VIN plate on the head is a US thing only?

It must be based on your post in the other thread.

That would be a real bad idea to pull the head.

Just use a dental mirror and get your VIN.

AP1 will start with JHMAP1

AP2 will start with JHMAP2

If you came to me no charge of course to read the numbers.

The trans has a VIN also that matches the car VIN. it is on the right side of the trans, under the car.

You'd be crazy to pull the head to get the vin. You think your motoro is stolen or something?

My 02 had a sticker on the front block with the VIN IIRC. Next to the crank pully...I could be wrong as that block is long gone lol
