HI Mark,

the engine marking has a two prefix letter on any lotus Esprit/Excel model.

The first prefix letter could be C for Esprit or D for Excel model, the second prefix letter could be :

A= HC engine

B= HC PAS

N= HC-PAS & A/C

P= HC A/C

Y= Esprit from Feb.1987

Also the carbs are of a different version called Tri-Jet dell'Orto DHLA 45D all the LC cars have the 45E model

Again you can find LC or HC engine with ancillaries parts swapped on so the only secure way to identify is to check the Lotus marking on the casting.

Hope that helps.

Ciao

Giorgio
