                                                                                                                                                                     KINGS CROSS
                                                                                                                                                                     LONDON, N1.
                                                                                                                                                                     TYPE 4.5  No. 44461

Well its an Amanco, but a picture will help us all to help you, as would the horsepower and a serial number.

Could somebody tell me how to start and stop my 4.5HP Bradford Amanco engine, I am unfamiliar with this type of engine, also could somebody date the engine for me.
Thanks, Bernard.

Hello Bernard,

A lot of useful Amanco info here...dating tips (although on one forum the advice from members to another trying to 'date' his Amanco was to not be shy and just ask it out...oh dear lord... Smile)

http://www.oldengine.org/members/smigle/associatedpage03.htm

and...

http://www.howardengineerium.co.uk/Amanco%20Info.html

Let us know how you get along.

Best

A couple of very good links but unfortunately they are for the American Amanco engines and not the Bradford Amanco....

Information on the Bradford Amanco is thin on the ground but I know someone has it, just can't remember who!!!
