strange serial number.

Post by earlsinclare on Sun Jan 08 2012, 16:36

i do like the a1, they are not to everyone's liking but it would be boring if everyone had the same engine. i cleaned the plate to find the number its a 1.5hp model (i thought i was buying a 3hp) the serial number is 1504565 from the list of serial numbers all the a1 series had 6 digit serial numbers this one has 7.

I must keep my eye out for one . only a smallish one for cutting firewood up scraps etc

Sorry to hear it's not the engine you were expecting Richard but I'm sure that one will be tidyed up and sold on then you can start looking again for the one you want.

I may have got this wrong, but it seemed to me that the A1 produces 1.5hp @750 RPM. 2hp @1000 RPM and 3hp @1500RPM. affraid
I would be interested to get to the bottom of this if anyone knows.

I think you are somewhat right as the HP is determined by the revs and the guvnor fitted.
Here's an info sheet that might help
