I think Steve has it. Looks very much like a marinised LandRover engine, either a 2.25 or a 2.5.

Steve. CM1 and NR12

Yes I think the bmc was from a black cab lol the engine hasn’t been run for a few year but the oil still looks really clean so I’m hopeful it will be fine lol

Hi Dave yes its a BMC engine the cc is cast on the side of the block or the engine no which is on top of the block at the front where the head joins. IF the engine hasn't been run for a number of years DONT try and start it on the starter moter, first bleed the fuel lines and injectors then turn engine over three times with a spanner on the dog nut at the pulley, if sized! remove starter moter and lever with large screw driver on ring gear if it then frees turn engine over three times by hand then with starter trickling RED EX down air in take then start the engine on tick over for three minutes if ok increase revs to 1500 rpm for ten minutes all the while checking for leaks knocks until thermostat opens if all ok change oil filters, antifreeze, impellor and belts.

Ooh gosh, if the engine hasn't been run for a few years I hope all is well. My engine knowledge is limited to what my Dad used to tell me back in the day, so the experienced members here are the ones to offer more detailed advice.

You are very brave  ( in my opinion!) to have taken on a new purchase without knowing if you had a running engine, so best of luck with both the mechanical and the cosmetic aspects. I suppose at the moment you'll be chomping at the bit, unable to work on her due to the current Covid restrictions.  But the planning and research will hopefully keep,you busy.

By the way, as I mentioned before - what is the other Broads reg number that you have? And where did you find it?

Thanks Karen I'm a multi trade bathroom fitter so the making look pritty and the nice bits I can do no worries if it turns out there a big problem with the engine I'll have it rebuilt the most important part for me is that the superstructure is good the mercanical things can be done all in all its a lovely boat and I can wait to get it back to the broads
