I've now been able to get at my spares engine, and removed the the tiller mount with throttle linkage if you still need one?

Thank you so much. I am still in need. I got your email and responded. This is the biggest obstacle stopping me from mechanically restoring my Britannia.Th elast piece I need is the fuel cap if you happen to have one.

The left hand one is a Swordfish, introduced approx 1949/50. The right hand engine is the Britannia outboard which came after the lightwin, introduced approx 1934, available as an outboard, an inboard, or the middy which was an inboard/outboard configuration.

Thanks for the information . I thought the left one was a Swordfish but the tank is very flat compared with all the pictures I've seen and I can't find one with the exhaust shaped like it . Can you age them from the serial numbers ?

I believe both engines are Britannias. The one on the right being the 'Service Model' dating from around 1945 as it has the fishtail exhaust, whilst the other is the next incarnation and was available from around April 1946 to sometime in 1949 when they redesigned the exhaust and replaced the 'wings' with a wooden grab handle
