Help with production dates

Hi all

my name is mike Edwards from uk, I have just found a great 16h project and
would like to find out what I can from the engine and frame numbers which I have attached.

Engine number W90676 79X
Frame 90123.

I would appreciate any information that you could offer.

Many thanks


Re: Help with production dates

Well as far as the 79X is concerned. That is part of the stamping 79X100 which is the bore and stroke in millimetres. Someone who has a copy of Orchard and Madderns book will be able to help with the frame number but is probably about 1944/5. There is usually a prefix W but that is sometimes missing or faint.
