about how the numbers work...so your engine would be about 60,000th after his...if they were numbered incrementally ?...so when you start to think about how many cars were produced in each series and the years and a low percentage would have been 308s...and then the Statesman 308s used a different prefix again that would suggest the engine could have been earlier than late HX..but if you use the same logic I cant figure out why the numbers are so high if they started the numbers at HQ...are the numbers unique from the prefix? So there cannot be 2 engines with the same number and different prefix? My 81 WB 308 is a WT201XXX so has me confused re how they numbered the engines...maybe they started at WT2000000

I also have a ZT engine it only has 4 digits 11** I would assume that they started at 1000 or maybe zero.
