Explain what you mean by asking for the engine number?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
The engine in each car has series numbers
for ex sample something like thing 120110GC788
Expert:  Mike S. replied 8 months ago.

Ok, what you are asking is backwards. Usually someone would have the engine number and ask what vehicle it came out of, not the other way around. may I ask, why are you wanting these numbers?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
My customer needs the info to complete some paper work but the person who we bought from is unable to provide the info.
Expert:  Mike S. replied 8 months ago.

The numbers would be on the engine then.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Are you able to find it in your system?
Expert:  Mike S. replied 8 months ago.

No, my repair manuals don't list the engine serial numbers like that. Like I said, normally it's the other way around. Whomever is asking for these numbers should just read the numbers off of the engine.
