EXCEPT RX-7



On piston engines through 1981, the serial number and engine type code are located on a plate mounted at the right front, top of the block, except for the GLC type TC engine, which has the plate on the front of the cylinder head. On 1982-89 models, the engine number is located on a machined pad extending from the cylinder block, just below the No. 1 spark plug (between the distributor and the alternator).

RX-7



The engine identification number is stamped on the front of the engine between the distributor (or crank angle sensor on later engines) and the alternator.
