Still no joy in finding the engine number, i will have a good look at the Smallholders Show at the weekend, the stable is a bit crowded at the moment...

I have also dug out the Mowett Mustang article first mentioned in alans original posting on the Mustang, its in T&M August 2009 issue page 128-129, well worth a read, I can do copies for interested parties f.o.c...

That was the way the deck was mounted when I got it, perhaps it can be turned round ??

Sure it can be turned around.  Your mustang looks a lot like mine when i got it.  I have to paint the hood, put the differrential together for the rear axle and rebuild/paint the motor so i guess im 50 percent done.

With the arrival of the 8hp Mustang you may think the 5hp has been forgotten... not a bit of it, this will have a restoration over the winter and appear in a slightly different guise next year... don't worry Dieselhead I'm not painting it pink !!
