You Need a letter in front of the engine number.. eg 2A/C is 1948. They used a letter code for the year....

Hi the  bullfich came with a J.a.p. 2A originally, years of production were 1955-1961, if i'm reading the chart correctly(engine number) yours dates from 1961.
If it isnt orange it isnt a rotavator

Late 60's, maybe just 1970  if the engine is blue.
