All the QT stands for is 308 so it could have been from a variety of vehicles (statesman were stamped 11QT however). There will be numbers, a letter and a clock dial stamped above the water pump, if you could post up this information we can tell you the date when the block was cast but there is no way of knowing what it originally came out of.

can someone tell me what the clock dial on top of the block stands for.and does anyone have one please.

cheers

Clock is the time it was cast on the day....

Blocks are date and time coded so GMH can follow up any bad blocks that may have a problem

I am unsure of the block i have in an XJ6 jag - 11QT697793
The inlet manifold on this motor has been changed to a two barrel Stromberg but the lug on the manifold doesn't line up.
Is this by the numbers above a red block?
The block is painted blue but I am suspicious of this as the 11qt indicates HQ - HZ Statesman.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Mr. Jones
Just have another question, the cast date code says 3e7. Would this not mean its a 77 model?
Thanks again

[_(•)______(•)__]~~~~~~

Ok thanks for that, much appreciated. I read somewhere that 308's with QT prefix were all Turbo pattern but they are obviously wrong.
Now this motor is painted blue but is this really a blue motor ? And how do I tell it's date.. Are you saying the date is stamped on the front casting or numbers to be de-coded ?

All 308 blocks
made before HJ model came out are a Tri-matic pattern..

on the front of your block [http://gallery.oldho...| HERE] will be where the cast code is......

Yours will be something like 15D4.. [http://i174.photobuc...|here's a 6M4 one]

The only thing blue about your block is the blue paint..

Haha wow thanks for that, I am not a bundle of knowledge on these old girls so your help is greatly appreciated. I bought a WB 1 tonner ute yesterday that I am going to do up repaint and hopefully use on the highway. It has recently had the full gas setup put on it so I thought it can't be to bad on fuel if I get the gear ratio right. I have resprayed a lot of cars in my time and the ute was going very cheap so I grabbed it. I have had a few 308's in my time also but all were in ski boats. My next question is: This automatic trimatic transmission it has, are they the only option without spending big money ??? I don't want the ute for brute horsepower, just to use it as it is on the highway and keep it in good condition. It will be loaded up to its one ton limit on some trips ( P.S. I import stuff and pick it up myself from Bris or Syd) ranging from car jacks and other heavy equipment I can get cheap from oversea's. I am worried the 3 speed trimatic won't like the job that's all. But also I want the 308 to sit on a low 2200 RPM or there abouts when cruising on 100km. Do you think this is possible with the trimatic trans and will first gear be to high with the higher ratio.. ???

Can anybody please tell me what Car this engine is out of?
QT807144. 1K6

Hi, can someone tell me what the engine code QT 262823 or it could be QT 262828 thanks.

I've also had a crack at reading the cast date C 172 4 o'çlock as being built 17th March 1972 at 16:00 is that right? I'm missing all sorts of parts so an exact model number will help me out

cheers for your help...

So that would make it a red 308 out of a 1972 HQ and I think non Statesman because they have 11 in front of the QT

I have a HZ GTS and as far as I know it is original. I am the 2nd owner and all numbers match but the engine number, 11QT29485, is a Statesman HZ number. Did they put these motors in the GTS? The date looks like 0281.
Thanks

It would be a 308 out of a HQ Statesman
date code would be G281 ?
which works out to July 28th 1971

Hi, I just trying to check on info on 308 I’m looking at buying.
I believe by engine no qt 830000 and date code 1k6 it’s a late 76 maybe early 77 built car but my big Question is were any 308’s built factory then with 4 bolt mains? Or are they just been fitted later, they are factory crank stops too with correct part numbers

Hi there Can anyone help me I have a 308 that I think is a Blue that was rebuilt some time ago and the engine number was taken off when the block was machined. Was restamped but not sure if it would be the correct number or original number going by all the info I have read here. Is a 79 HZ 308 number in a sandman number now is QT474751. Chassis number is CHZ21839B is a XX7 number on compliance plate 2 seater with light switch in doors. Tyre sticker in glove box has black paint over it. I want to know if this is the right engine number as I think it has been restamped with incorrect number.
