    IIRC engine number is stamped on the block facing up by cylinder 4 (right hand side of engine, it may be buried under grime. eg X14XE or C14SE. Is it 8v or 16v?

    its a C14 in the low-power *sorry, high-torque* breeze. its the base engine like they put in the boggo astras. why do you want to know which it is anyway just from curiosity?

    cheers all,
    I am trying to get a cambelt but only get as far as what engine is it which as I dont know is as far as I get. I know its not ecotech as the rocker cover is marked vauxhall not ecotech its a thin cover so assume its SOHC but trying in vain to find out if its 8 or 16v. Have looked at far end of block nearest passenger but can see GM but nothing else. I have an engine pic but cant work out how to upload it.

    Dave

    Thats an 8v block ^^ which is sohc/single over head cam so its got 8v so 2 valves per cylinder one for the inlet and one for exhaust outlet.The valves are bigger and heavier so take a little longer to respond compaired to 16v which has 4 valves per clyiner and there smaller so responce is quicker..

    16v engine

    problem solved its a 8 valve X14SZ, ie 1.4 single fuel injection with EGR. SOHC.
