yeah sorry. just noticed my reply sounds like i didnt notice what you had said. lol. i do like it but had a few people comment on it being wrong but i just ask them whos engine it is and if i want it that color so what. so it makes a change for someone to say they like it so thanks for that. Very Happy

What age is your engine and have you managed to find any information on it, all i know about mine is that it is a Bradford 5hp 1933 enclosed crank and carb governed, it's nice having a rare engine but finding any info is a nightmare lol! lol! lol!
