Default Douglas SV54

Hi

Picked up a Douglas SV54 recently, and would like to find out its age. Can anyone help with this?

Thanks!

Hi From your user name, I guess you are the person who has just purchased the manual from me on Ebay (Wizardclassicsuk). You will find a summary of the dating information which is available in the manual, together with a guide for dating your engine, from its serial number.

Hi Peter

Have just received the manual - very interesting it is too!

Haven't got the number to hand, but it is 3661H I think. It seems to be one of the ones that doesn't conform with the dating information. I will have a look this weekend for the stamping that you mention in the manual.

Cheers
