I know how confusing these JAP engines can be Mad I have just had a look at my other engine and found the number on it 2A/D 505881/I. This means that it too is a 2A from 1954 but it looks nothing like my other one which is 2A.I.83794 and dates to 1947. The later engine looks bigger and has an oval tank unlike the round one of the earlier one.

Here's the 1947 one with the repaired HT lead. The tank is off my Briggs as I am using the JAP one for that for now

Here's the 1954 one with oval tank. I know that it could have been replaced but it looks genuine and has a JAP cap. (This one needs an HT lead too!)

However, the number of this one totally confuses me. It is E30/15/01/24012. This second one doesn't have JAP cast in the crankcase either. Any ideas?

Just had a thought, is this a JAP 4/3 made by Villiers?

yes JAP or
j a prestwich were part of the villiers engineering group from 1957 onwards
