ADO16 (1300GT) Engine ?

Post by Tex1965 »

I came accross this engine 12H/159A/H62940, 11 studs. I don't know the type of head yet.

Would that possibly be ADO 1300GT engine?

I could not find what prefix 159A means.

I thought all 1300gt engines were fitted with the close ratio gearbox?
I found an ADO16 in a field , it was an MG 1300GT . The engine code showed as; 1300GT,
A Series 1275 cc
Transverse mounted
S, type design variants
close ratio remote control gearbox, 4 syncho'
3.44:1 final drive.
