Default How do you tell the year of your motor?

I got a swap awhile ago when I blew my stock motor. Now I have another motor in it, but I dont know what year the motor is.

Looking at the motor in my engine bay, how can I determine what year my motor is?

Should be stamped on the head in one of the little circles. I dont think you will be able to see it if your stock heat shields are on. Another way to check is if its a us motor should be able to run the vin and find out what car if came from.

he said the block not the head.

to determine the block u have to get the first number of the engine block. And gsr mass production was in 94 so is it was a 1 your engine was a 94. if it is a 2 your engine is a 95. etc.

just get the first number of the engien block

the block is going to have as many miles as the head, and the block itself hasnt been redesigned too much over the years. so why does it matteR?

that year doesnt tell you all, if you read the first number and its 9/7 and the second, is like about 7 or something its a 98... THe second is the number and if its a curtain and above its the next year.

So does that mean that the second number is the month it was made?

Maybe you can do something with the block's serial #. Not sure. That pic is of my 00Si's engine stamp.

And here's one that somebody already posted. The 9/9 means it was made back in '99. But like somebody already pointed out, that's the head's manufactured-on date.


See what you can figure out with the serial # off your block.
Sorry for the big pics guys.

My motor serial number is 4301383-1HG. I bought it used from a local Honda mechanic and drag racer, and am putting it in my 1993 Del Sol Si. I need the exact year, because, living in California, I'm going to have to have the engine swap inspected by the State smog control referee. I'll need all the obd-1 components for the engine year.
From the posts that I've read, it seems to be a 1994.
Thank you,
Marc Hesthal
