Your best bet is to contact Jim Perkins, he will be able to shed some light on when your engine was made and possibly who it was supplied to. Have a look here > http://www.petterengines.co.uk/contact.html Hope this helps Dan

Thankyou biggusdanuss will contact him the engines been in the family since 1951i think and it use to run a dynamo and later on moved onto a corn crusher but it was lucky it suvived the scrap as we had a cs and a hornsby ackeroid (probably not correct spelling) but was very exited when I read the serial number plate
