    I need to determine the engine number, vice VIN, on my 1985 308 in order to get the proper warm-up regulator. I've noticed a "703" stamped into the frame-rail in the engine compartment behind the driver. Is that the engine number? If not, where do I need to look?

    Thanks, from a novice.

    The number is on the block at the top above the waterpump, closer to the rear head.

    You're welcome, Stratton. The airbox in your QV might obstruct the view a bit, but you'll find it.

    What's the flat piece of metal, roughly pointed, perpendicular to the intake manifold along side the runner of #1. Don't have on my car (77)? Just curious.

    Philip, that would be the microswitch,... "if something that big can be called micro"... for the points.

    Philip,

    Is your 308 a Euro or has the ignition system been modified?
