There is a bit of work in this and...

Re: AD 135

AD 135 A few notes and observations On SOS site the last engine in the period 1946/1947 was AC 694.

Re: Yes or no ?

by sharing data we can all critique it and assess our own collections. Jeremy's and of course the SOS data is the only data that I have to go on other than a few parts lists that I have downloaded as they pop up and my own spread sheets on my engines that I keep carful records on detailing the condi...

Re: Silver Century Plus long shaft depth adjustment question
