    Williams or 16v

    What's the easiest way to tell what type of engine it is?

    Are you referring to the 16v that's on eBay with the apparent Williams engine?

    Yeah that's it, it used to be mine and I'm sure it wasn't a Williams engine. Plus has been sat there for 4 years and was a bag of Shit in the first place

    haha. Yes it's appears to have a 16v dipstick but a Williams manifold. Guess the only way to find out is to take a look at the engine plate.

    Pulling out no.1 spark plug, putting a long stick in the hole, turning the engine over by hand & measuring the stroke will show beyond any shadow of a doubt what engine it is.

    Starter motor can give an indication as to what it is but it's not conclusive as the williams starter can also be fitted to the 1.8 block but the valver starter doesn't fit the willy block

    ID plate is at the bottom of the dipstick tube



    and the last indicator is these 2 ribs on the back of the block behind the starter motor, only the F7R has these
