    Engine Type

    Hi How can you tell by looking at the engine if it's an AJ6 or an AJ16 unit.

    its fairly easy

    the AJ6 has spark plug leads on the outside with the ribbed cam cover ( usually black )

    the AJ16 has no distributor, hence no spark plug leads, but on plug coil packs covered by a long cover on the cam cover, these are made of magnesium and usually silver and smooth
