I rallied a smaller, lighter and arguably prettier engine today.......... The bugger wouldn't start without being belted up to another engine!😁

From this post, I think your correct:

I would interested to know how they differ from the VSH range as they look almost identical.

It was running when I walked by ! I was quite impressed with these Normans. First time I have seen one close up and they are quite compact. Hmmm !
