Volvo Engine Types

Engine Models

 

At the left hand side of the engine you will be able to find the engine model. The mould-in number 4968 corresponds with the B18 and the 4969 with the B20. Right of it
you will find a flat piece of ground metal containing a hammered in 2-digit number. The mould-in number together with the hammered in number define the model number of the engine.

In the flat piece a little bit more to the right the engine number has been hammered in. This is the serial number.

NZ means that these engines are applied in Volvos that were assembled outside Sweden

LM means that the engine was sold by Volvo as a loose engine. The B18 for instance can be found in the English Marcos, a sportive two seater and in the French Facel Vega Facelia, after the engine they developed themselves, was a total failure. We are not aware of any other car brands applying the B20 engines.

The add on R means that these engines were applied in Volvos with steering on the right (as far as we know).

L3314/15 is the Laplander, well known to the Swedes. It is a small 4 wheel drive that is being used by the Swedish army.

For the B18 engines, all types are indicated. For the B20i engines only those are indicated that were used in the Amazon, P1800E and P1800ES.

Scandcar has the intention to bring an overview of all B4B and B16 engines, but this will take some time as Scandcar will have to dig deeper into the archives.
