Hello Craig, and welcome to the forum.
PM me, I have a PDF manual for the Startomatic, and will be happy to send it along to you.
Cheers

Hi Craig,

That serial number would be the 1952-1982 format, which breaks down as Engine No. 927, 5/1 model, built in 1952.

Given you say it was commissioned in the 1960s, I wonder if there's a digit missing? e.g. 9275112 (which would make it a 1962 engine).

It's worth noting that the 5/1 and 6/1 engines are identical, just with a different RPM rating (600 for the former, 650 for the latter). The engine serial number plate should also specify the RPM (also the spec number).

Cheers!
Ade.
