Petter PAZ1 dating

Post by tsjaar on Fri Jan 18 2013, 18:40

Hello,
I just bought a Petter PAZ1. I want to know from which year it is.
The serial nr on the plate is 4113402.
It has a upright decompressor lever (unlike a flat one, which is shown in the most handbooks).

Can anyone help me?
And has anyone the right handbook for this typ?

Tnx
Tsjaar

Your engine is an early one by your description, I did have a handbook but sold it with my engine. If you send an email to Jim Perkins (ex Petter service engineer) he can date it and may even have a handbook. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

All I can help you with is the PAZ1 range was built from 1953 - 1981.

Thanks guys cheers ,

Jim Perkins was of great help!
According to him mine Petter PAZ1 is a series 1 from 1962.

I found myself that they build 2 series.
Series 1 were built between 1954 - 1963 with engine numbers 4100001 - 4125891.
Series 2 were built between 1964 - 1979 with engine numbers of 4130001 - 4251178.

This might be of help for someone els.

Tsjaar.

And is there also a second place for the serial number? I have not a type plate at my Petter, and hope there is another place for this number.

ps:can you post a picture from your Petter?

Have you checked the flywheel for numbers, some engines have them stamped there but not sure about a PAZ1.

Send Jim Perkins the number on the fuel pump, he may be able to roughly date that?

Hi all,

I just came across this post after trying to find the build date of my PAZ1. Unfortunatley there's no serial number tag on the cowling, but the flywheel has 193366. By using the numbers above and dropping the leading 4 which is common to all of the numbers it fits within the second range about halfway so about 1970 assuming approx the same amount of engines per year.

Does anyone know if this is a valid way of dating the engine?

Thanks
