Thank you. Have you a rough idea of the value for one of these ?

Thanks, Dan.

The Amanco version is worth more than a Bradford, due in part to the spoked flywheels. Best looking at selling prices on ebay.

I don't think its a Bradford Amanco. The Amanco engine is normally straight petrol whereas this is petrol/paraffin. Also the Amanco would normally have AMANCO MADE IN ENGLAND cast on the crank case top cover.

The spoked flywheel Bradford's were sold to other customers, most notably Chalmers Edina.

What does it say on the top of the crankcase door, Dan? As Mike says, Yours is petrol/paraffin which could have been a "special" order from any of the end users, Amanco, Chalmers Edina, Ogle, Avon, Hoppa and Walsh & Clark and probably others too. It's definitely of Bradford origin.

Crossed post, Dan!! Sorry.

Bradford did market the spoked flywheel enclosed crank themselves so could just be a Bradford.

The Bradford engines used on Avon dragsaws nearly all had solid flywheels. I think your engine is just a Bradford engine from Shipley.
