It certainly is an aspera stuart   and i think quite an earl seventies one. and judging by the compression and spark it will run again. But there is still a fair way to go yet. I wonder how many of these engines have survived once two a penny and made in there thousands a cheap and nasty engine to some but perhaps a modern classic. I know my dad threw them away by the bucket load when he was in business back in the seventies

Nigel, you wouldn't still have that Teagle you once offered me, because this year I am coming south to Ardingly and I thought I could take advantage of your offer if you still had it as I am still looking for a machine to attach to my mayfield and cut my hedges.

That is so simple it's brilliant. No struggling to get that on your trailer.

Fairly certain that it is an Aspera VA633. May have been "cheap and nasty" but I still have a couple of them running on Flymos. We even used to short block them!
