And it appears to attract the attention of some 'would-be' comedians!

Looks like it was done with a tar brush. Maybe a weekend 'restoration'!

What is wrong with you people?
A person asks a question and there is now near two pages of absolute and utter dribble.

Yes. Not much information can be given to that picture but what would have been wrong in a reply like....
Sorry Andrew not much can be said about the plate but by the serial number it can be seen the engine was made in 1945 (as mentioned by another member) according to http://www.oldengine.org/members/die...ing/Dating.htm
The spec. number. I do not know what significance there is in regards to the 26 but the D indicates it is a Lister D, the 2 indicates it is a 2hp engine and the H indicates it is hopper cooled (as mentioned by another member). If I am wrong I'll happily stand corrected.
Hopefully someone would be able to say what the significance is to the 26 in the SPEC. number. Apparently a book by David Edgington called "The Lister D Story" will fill some gaps in the details.
The rest of the label is self explanatory.

Virtually all the rest is absolute dribble.
A couple of people mentioned the 2hp and 1000 rpm. Well at least that is giving the poster more information that he, or she, may not have known. Another poster mentioned that mixed fonts with the stamps was an indicator that the engine was made during the war. Cheers for that. But the rest?
How can anyone learn with the crap you people seem to enjoy to carry on with endlessly?

Cheers Scott
