Sounds like it may have had a replacement crank at some point?

That would then require flywheels replacing or boring out, new big end etc etc. either the serial number has been swapped or that...

eBay Noah, I can't remember the exact dimensions, but it is a simple extension spring with a hook at each end. Say 8mm dia and from my hazy memory, about 30-40mm long.

Spark plug is simple enough, A's and A1's are very tolerant to plug types/makes, 1/2" long thread, some of them use a 14mm thread (mostly A1's), others 18mm. too long a plug will bottom...

eBay is a good start, alternatively, a wanted AD on here, or in the stationary engine magazine.

Yep, it would have to be a fair sized engine to produce 5bhp at 750.

Most likely a 1.5hp that has been mis stamped. the 5bhp example would be 1650rpm.
