Default Date Lister B

Hi, anyone able to date a Lister B please?
5hp, 650rpm, no Spec number on plate, just the number 14BHZ60. Thanks,

Phillip

14 should be the serial number
B is the type
H is hopper cooled
Z should be reverse rotation
60 is a bit of a puzzle, as the number should be added to 1950 to give the year, but it obviously won't work with 60.

Any other details?

Question Lister b date

I have had a look at the Lister a/b story by David Edgington but cannot find any details pertaining to your spec numbers.

Yes, Peter and M Watt, I thought the same as you, tried both, no wiser..... hence the question on here. No other details available.
