Hello,

I have been doing a bit of research online, on and off the forums trying to understand the engine code. I know that I have a B18 in my '66 with the twin SU carbs.
I just don't understand how to know which B18 I have.

What numbers on the block should I be looking for?
Here is what I see stamped:

4368 B18

JBG
418201

Thank you for your help

Welcome to the Forum.

If your Volvo Amazon 122S P120 (4-door sedan) is in its original configuration and is a USA version it has B18D with twin SU HS6 carbs.

Below are some info links. "Amazon" refers to the 122 but the name was in conflict with another entity in the USA so we use the 122 moniker.

Consider visiting the Gallery and posting more pics of your Volvo(s).

Does the Amazon have a name?

Thanks George,

Its actually a 2 door — and both of them are noisy enough — can't imagine having 2 more!
