It looks like the ML magneto thats normally fitted to the shaft drive D's. There is usually a black metal strip that has ML imbosed into it thats fitted over the magnets.

Definitely an ML which is the standard fitting for the age, should have "ML Lister" cast in to the base.

Just had a check says Mk1-3 and i think DB0 (bit faded) would that be right??
Got another quick one just had a quick clean of the data plates on the engine and under spec it says model 13d/2 and states its 2hp and 1000 revs, i was told it was 11/2 and 700

Strangely enough by ML !

M.L. Magneto Syndicate Ltd., I think of Coventry, part of Smiths Industries until sold to Lucas around about the early 1930's.
