Default Lister A tank cooled

Hi all, i purchased a new engine Thursday its a Lister a type tank cooled. it needs a bit of work to get her running but nothing too hard. there is no compression as there's a stuck valve, it doesn't spark and it hasnt got a fuel tank.

Its fitted with a BTH magneto would this be original or one someone else has put on?

Default Lister A

Hi
The mag type for your engine is a Lucas RS 1 anti clock rotation I recommend David Edgington book The Lister A and B Story 1923_ 1963 available from www.stationaryenginebooks.co.uk.
