Default Rad cooled A

Original? Unusual? Application?

I note it has a flame trap on the carb like the fuel bowser engines.

Nice looking engine, I haven't got a clue if it is original or not but I would have thought lister would have mounted the radiator on a bracket from the cylinder head or crankcase? The bracket looks old but doesn't look lister-ish to me, just my opinion of cause I might be completely wrong!

Bracket looks designed to mount on base plate - gen set perhaps?
