You sure? I bought a load of spare parts of a siezed 3-pot machine (i.e 88/89 vintage)with that livery on the cowl.......

Mind you, this might be one of those "what shade of silver is it?" type conversations, so I'll stop here!

That hood is definately different to mine. Thanks for all you help. Believe it or not, this isn't even the most I have been misled about regards age of an engine.
Like I say though, the engine looks good for its age, and if it runs well, I will be happy.
Thanks again for all of your help!
Geoff
