Mini Cooper 1275 engine rebuild

I'm rebuilding a 1275 (pre A+) engine and wondering if we have many classic Mini owners here. Have one specific question. "P1640" is stamped on the three main bearing caps and on the front face of the block (upper left corner, ALF). Mean anything to anybody?

Have one but the engine is in the car. Hard to see with it together. Don't put too hot a cam in the rebuild. Mine does not have much power below 3000rpm, but really takes off after that.
