It gives info such as pulley types, and locations for oiling and draining. Interestingly it shows that my engine was built with a turbocharger fitted. All other ancillaries are listed as supplied "with" or "without".
To find the engine number
The engine number is located on the top
surface of the cylinder block in front of the first cylinder head, under the
water pipe. (To read it, itís easier to lie on the wing with your head facing
the radiator). If you take your engine number to your local Scania dealer- I
personally recommend Ellesmere Port
Scania as being particularly helpful - they can give you a print out
of the build specifications for your engine.†

numbers for filters - Fleeetguard items,
available from any commercial truck factors.

Oil grade- 15w40 (about 20 litres)
Scania's own coolant contains antifreeze and all the other necessary additives. You will need 20- 25 litres as the coolant capacity is 10- 11 gallons. A 30 to 50% mix is recommended.
These are available and are in the region of £134 plus vat (retail).
Six different drive belts are listed for the engine, check the part number on yours before ordering. Personally I would recommend the belt be changed as its history and mileage is unknown.
