Lister info needed
« on: April 20, 2020, 07:20:38 AM »
Hi would just like to thank you for accepting me onto this forum

Recently we had the opportunity to help clean up an old farm here near us in Vaalwater South Africa. We salvaged a few old old engines, pumps and generators. One of the engines weve had to open up and clean out completely.

And I was hoping that I could get a bit more information on this engine
The serial number reads 1463112
H.P. 3.5 and R.P.M

Ill post some pictures with

Hi Gavin,

Your engine serial number breaks down as follows:

146 - is the production number for the year
31 - = 3/1, i.e. it's a 3hp engine @ 600rpm, or a 3.5hp @ 650rpm
12 = 1962 (1950 + 12 years)

I can't tell you much more than that, unfortuately.
Cheers!
Ade.
