In fairly good condition but not moving in the butterfly's spindle. I've forgotten the numbers I found on it, I will post them later,

Looks very similar to one I found in my Dad's collection of spare carbs (see http://www.tractorbox.co.uk/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=6279 for some photos)
 
Unfortunately, he has no idea what it was originally fitted to.

Thanks to all three people who replied, there does seem to be a resemblance there and the numbers are similar too.
I had another look at a it and ran some Rustola graphited oil around the seized butterfly spindle yesterday and lo and behold! There was a bit of orange paint there, cheers all,
PS, when I can find the ultrasonic cleaner, I want to strip it all right a out and clean her up, stuff just laying around in an unusable condition is no good to anyone I reckon,

The AC158 part number cast on the inlet manifold refers to the AC engine
