Peter,
Thank you, the rims had been painted but I found the numbers, 260690, the same on both flywheels. If I am reading the dating chart right it was made in late 1945. I'll write to David and get more details.

Default number on flywheels

Does anyone know where the numbers are on a lister A Flywheel.I can not find them possibly due to paint. Inside or outer rim will help.
Thanks Brian L

The serial number should be stamped on the flywheel face, that's the bit that faces the sky and the ground at the same time. EG it's not on the side/rim of the flywheel. There should also be a '1' or a '2' stamped under each serial number, these are flywheel numbers to identify which side each flywheel is fitted to.

If you are still struggling to find it then let me know and I'll take a photo of the number on one of the flywheels on my Lister A, so you can see the shape and location of what you are looking for. Hope this is useful.
