I need to find out what sort of engine i have. the engine number is JLCMTL12791.

I have bought a new tappet cover gasket form my NL fairlane and was supplied with one for an ED and told it will fit. it is miles to big.

I have bodgied something up that will likely leak like hell but i need to know what type of engine that is as it has been replaced by ford and i am not sure what car it is out of. likes very AU too me but i am not an expert.

Regards

Barry
