Default First engine help and info please!!

This is my first post and its about my first engine. I've been told its a 1929 Lister B16 it has some strange plates and a red pull up button that i haven't seen on others that i've looked at, it also has no sump plug which according to the Lister A and B story by David Edgington makes it rare. I'm a complete novice so any help or information any one can give me will be brilliant, thanks. oh and i know its not got a magneto on it as i've sent it off to be fixed!

The red button is not for pulling up, its a crank case breather and quite common on early A's and B's.
Did you fetch it back from Holland or buy it in the UK.

Very nice engine. Reservations about the "red bits", just my opinion of course !! That pulley is a masterpiece!!
The silencer looks suspiciously like one of my "creations"!! Easy way to tell, is the welding between the pipe
and the end plate visible? I always weld that joint on the inside for neatness.

Contact Doreen Edgington, she will be able to give you the date it left the factory and where it went.
