My "Oil Engine Manual" says that the SD1 weighs 1090lbs (494.4 kg), The SD2 weighs 1170lbs (530.7kg) and the SD3 weighs 1275 lbs (578.3kg).

Hi Charles,

The axles under your Z2 were Petter ones, from a 3-5hp trolley. the steering axle and handle was the giveaway.

Might have to re think the trolley idea as has cross member timbers which I never saw when looked at it ages ago. It is an sd1 but they are lumps.
Is that the Australian variant?
