I have a 1966 Austin Mini. Based on the vin # it is a Cooper S. The engine 
number is 38G464-RS-65778. The 38G464 says it is a 1275cc - Introduced in 
1970, most of which were fitted with EN16 Tuftrided crankshaft. Other 38G's 
that I have found are listed as Gold Seal engines.

The problem is that the engine has tappet covers. Is this correct for this 
engine or has the engine number been transferred to another engine?
