    I want to say thank you to all who've responded to the thread with offers to help track this guy. He has not replied to my last email so at this point I'm hoping boots on the ground in Holland are able to find this Ben M. guy. I prefer to hold on to the idea that this may eventually materialize...

    It looks like the case in question has been machined in the serial number area. Usually not the way, cases are stamped on the unfinished casting area, I think on purpose. Machined means restamped, also the number series is very uneven. Not a Teutonic value at all.

    Check out this VIN / engine # machine in this video. Could come in handy.

    Any idea where in Holland? Not that it is a big country but it could narrow it down a bit
    Good luck!

    just be careful, I got scammed on my "original"matching numbers 356 1600S engine last year. All I wound up with was the original timing cover and without 4500 dollars in my pocket. I got way too excited and threw reason in the trashcan. Horrible experience, made me so upset that I sold the car

    I am sorry to hear your story, that is very sad to read.

    As for 907495; I have offered Marco to drive over to the engine and make some pictures/ video. As many here know I am always posting engine numbers and only trying to help others find their original engine.

    That is the problem with the 3 piece 356/912 engines. They are not "numbers matching" unless all three pieces match. I can help with this if you have questions. One other fellow thought he had found his original engine except he did not realize that for some engines a leading "0" in the serial # is significant. Some concours judges might not notice that discrepancy, but I did.
