Default Age Related plate Worries..

Ok, ive been reading on here that people are really removing all signs of there sierra registration when they get the shell scrapped to assit in the process of obtaining an age related plate, however when my sierra shell was scrapped i didnt remove any vin numbers, but more to the point i did it the 'official' way and give in my v5.

I have copies of my v5, but is the sierra being registered as scrapped make it impossible/v. difficult for me to get an age related plate, as i couldnt find any thing relating to this from government sites?

any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks

HI, I know you probably don`t want to hear this but I don`t think you have any chance of an age related plate from your donor I`m afraid.
You could I suppose try and find another donor if it`s really important to you, but a Q isn`t the end of the world, plenty of them out there.

Ermmm.... I'm afraid so. You need a donor V5 to get your age related plate and prove the engine age for the IVA emissions.

If you are using the cvh engine from the donor then no problems, get your engine number from the block or copy of V5, then write to Ford for confirmation of age or use the V5 copy to prove the age. Just make sure the engine number matches the V5 & hasn`t been changed at some time

i guess ill be fine then, at least i no longer have the worry of needing an age related plate, infact ive been looking for a reason to get a different engine for some time, this may well be it!!

Thanks

An age related plate is a long shot, you may be able to visit your local DVLA and explain what has happened they MAY be sympathetic. For the Engine age you can use the chart in the link below to prove block age:

http://www.burtonpower.com/technical...ate_chart.aspx

Show this to your IVA tester and he can check block age from the first 2 letters of the number. I tried with Ford to get a confirmation letter and got no reply, the chart was okay for my SVA tester.

All the Best....AndyH

If you use a Ford engine the IVA inspector will accept the page from the Burtons catalog showing the Ford engine number age codes.

You will need proof of engine age anyway as the donor vehicle is no longer taken as proof of engine age.

Something like a pinto or CVH will not be a problem but something like a Zetec could be.

Ford will usually provide age of engine proof from an engine number, you just have to write to them. I think you need the homologation division.

Hi
What is so important about an age related plate? You canít see it when youíre driving and it still goes just as fast. I had the engine, gear box, diff V5 with photos and still didnít get an age related plate. I will depend on which DVLA office you go to.
