Hi from UK. You have found some manufacturing numbers. these are not the engine ID. (Help me out '68 owners 'cos I'm playing from memory here) - You should be looking for a number stamped on the cylinder head, between the camshaft cover and no.6 (front) spark plug. Should say something like "RAxxxx-9". the same number should be stamped on the bellhousing flange above the starter

The S2 2+2 engine numbers ran as follows 1R40001 - 1R44287: As Paul says it should be at the front of the cylinder head.
