My 1970 Traveller's original engine was a 10V/189E/..., and that wasn't a recon.

I gather later Travellers were 10V/190E/...

Not sure if there are any significant differences.

I'm certain E isn't a recon code.
Could 189 relate to the place the engine was made, or perhaps designating a batch? If the late travellers were Adderley Park ones, with engines built on site, they would have had a different cast for engines to Cowley, consequently a 190 designation. The E is still a mystery, maybe just means 'Engine' :roll:

You do surprise me, Roy, being something of a trainspotter, I would have thought you would have an encyclopedic knowledge of such matters. ;)

Well there's nothing that I have got in all my numbers records, which shows any explanation of additional code breakdown/explanations, so if anyone does come across it I'd be obliged if they could pass any onfo onwards.

I have tagged a lot of these discussion notes onto the "Minor" history notes being kept-you never know when that sort of info will become useful to someone in the future.

Think-there's nothing wrong with a bit of "anorak intellegence" Issigonis was called such, and   similaly pidgeon holed, by Lord Nuffied,and others of that ilk-there's hope for me yet :wink:
