    • (e) subject to subsection (3), the engine’s unique identification number;

    • (f) the model designations;

    • (g) the engine displacement;

    • (h) the identification of the emission control system;

    • (i) the engine family or the test group, as the case may be;

    • (j) the limits on the types of use for the engine to ensure that the emission standards set out in these Regulations are complied with;

    • (k) the engine specifications and adjustments recommended by the engine’s manufacturer;

    • (l) in the case of a spark-ignition engine, the valve lash, idle speed, ignition timing and idle air-fuel mixture setting procedure and value; and

    • (m) in the case of a compression-ignition engine, the engine power specified by the manufacturer and expressed in HP, the RPM at the specified horsepower, the fuel rate at the specified horsepower expressed in mm3 per stroke, the valve lash, idle speed and initial injection timing.

  • Marginal note:National emissions mark

    (2) Paragraph (1)(a) does not apply when a national emissions mark is applied to the engine.

  • Marginal note:Date of manufacture and unique identification number

    (3) The engine’s date of manufacture referred to in paragraph (1)(d) and unique identification number referred to in paragraph (1)(e) may, instead of being set out on the label, be permanently affixed, engraved or stamped on the engine.
