Got any pictures? A good shot of all sides plus close-up's of any markings would be a good start.

I'm sure someone will know something, but without even a description, it doesn't give us much to go on.

(& we all love to see some engine pictures Very Happy )

Oh yes, & welcome sign to the forum.

Not everything on Grace's Guide should be taken as gospel (there are a few mistakes on there) but that's a very good place to start. I love the picture on there too, they made some very nice little engines Capel. They seemed to put the extra care & attention to detail in that companies like Lister never managed to do. Lovely engines.

If the pic is anything to go off it looks to be an interesting engine. Is it a runner or in need of a lot of work.

Hi dan does your engine have a name plate on the cylinder head I've got a vertical capel here but missing its name plate would you be interested in possibly getting yours cast in brass and we could rub out the engine number on mine I would send you the money to do it a lot to ask I know but this would complete my engine
