Peter et al.

Slightly contrary to your statement, until I left Britain in 1976, the
two sides were always referred to as the near side (next to the edge of
the road) and the off side!  Obviously these were not common terms in
the US and would in any case have been interchanged.

Hi Roger:

It's standard operating proceedure to sit in the driver's seat and refer
to right and left.

The engine number and compression ratio are stamped on a flat at the
left rear of the engine block.

All the Best,
