    Yes, it will depend on if it as been previously registered with that engine - and more importantly if it's had the current engine number on the system. While it is currently on full rego, they may not have any details of that engine as it may have been done years ago and the rego authority never notified.

    If it has been, then you may have just come up against someone who has no idea - there's plenty of them out there.

    Check your rego papers to see I feel the engine number matches.

    Shouldn't need engineering, then.
    Dinty has a valid point. I know that is the case in SA.

    I know of a Series 2a with a holden motor on historic plates in NSW.
    Sounds like the RMS person needs some training.

    NSW-easy if

    Hi,
    my S1 ute had a 175 Holden and I put it onto Historic plates with no issues at all as it had been previously regoed on full plates with the Holden motor so it was already in the system--if so it should be no issue and no need for eng approval. There are hundreds of Holden engined LR's in every state.

    It might not be on H plates soon though if the CMC find out. They're supposedly clamping down on 'period modifications' & asking that they go onto the CVS (modified scheme).
