AMC 20T engine

Post  tbird on Wed Jul 18, 2012 3:57 pm

Hi All
Having passed on my Falcon 87 to a club member, I now have a spare engine sitting in the garage taking up room.
To rebuild my new project an 89 I need the space.
So I am offering it to any member before I put it on E-Bay.

The engine is a 20T AMC No 9238 ( JH will tell you it came from a James because I think it did.).
It has a recon Crank new Bearings and seals, the bore and piston are good with new rings.
It has the clutch complete, points cam and condenser, primary chain and box of bits.
All you need is to change the alternator and stator from your other engine,and you have a good engine that will last for years.

Any one interested please PM me Laughing Rolling Eyes (Before Saturday)

There is no way of knowing if a 20T came from a FB or James,only the badges on the side are different and they are easily changed,The factory records no longer exist,so a 20T is a 20T and could of started in either,unless they are recorded on an original logbook ,no-one can prove ptherwise,JH

Hi John, there are some AMC engine numbers in Roy Bacon's Villiers Singles & Twins, but they are a bit sketchy. I don't know how accurate they are, eg they give the 1962 Falcon 87 as 20T-7071, and the 1962 James L20 as 20T-5687. Mike

engine numbers

Post  piston 197 on Thu Jul 19, 2012 7:33 am

Mike ,not reliable at all,2 consequetive numbers may have been fitted to a james or FB,no factory records = no way of knowing,have a look in Arthur Gents register of machines,numbers are all over the shop ,admittedly some of these may have been changed,but there is no rhyme or reason,or any indication of pattern at all,especially when both machines later on were made side by side at Greet,JH

p.s. last time i suggested there were some errors and a certain amount of copied information, that was wrong in the first place, in the above authors work,i received a letter from the man's solicitors,so not going there again

Sorry John, was unaware of that in your post script, I hope you don't get another on my account. Mike
