Engine numbers missing from block

I need to order new bearings for my 2.0 TS but the engine numbers are missing. The donor car was also scrapped years ago and I don't know if I have any records of its registration plate. Is there a solution?

Well the engine number of the new lump should have been added to the owners docs for the car by the DVLA..very unlikely that actually happened though. Not to be too negative....but there are only two reasons to remove the engine numbers from a block..and that's if it's an engine from a stolen car....or the donor was a class A write off...in which case the engine should have been destroyed.

Thank you for the information. On the positive side, it looks as though parts are simply divided on engine size and the CF1,2 and 3 categories so I may not need the engine number after all!
