MG TD TF 1500 - Replacement Engine Tag

I don't believe I remember seeing this tag before. Decent TC!

The normal engine tag on a TC is an octagonal brass tag attached to the flywheel housing on the left side. I wonder if that might be an engine from a TB (XPAG engine) or a TA (MPJM engine). Cheers - Dave

This looks like a factory rebuilt engine. The factory rebuilt engines had a rectangular tag with the engine bore oversize and crankshaft undersize stamped on them. The "Gold seal" engines were painted bright gold/bronze color.
An MG dealer could install a replacemt engine in a mater of hours sending the owner on their way, and their blown engine would be sent back to the factory for reconditioning.

I probably was not sufficiently clear... I have seen a lot of replacement engines with factory replacement tags, usually larger rectangular ones mounted by the exhaust manifold, but I have not seen THIS version of the tag before.

Except for the non-original interior, that's one nice, original TC. Should fetch a pretty sum.

It has an Ocean-to-Ocean badge on it. Does anyone know anything about this car in Beverly, MA?

The TA uses an MPJG engine, not MPJM. I have MPJG583 in my TA. Original engine per the guarantee plate. See photo.

Some of the same "mistakes" as my TF, but they sure would look nice sitting together in my garage if anybody is looking for a nice gift for me! The rectangular driving lamp looks a bit "out of place" to me ...but I have a spare round one. LOL
