Default Dating engine please

Hi, i am new to Lister's so please bear with me. I got hold of three engines & looking to refurbish at least two of them "later two" but i am really confused on dating these engines. The plate markings are as bellow & told these where the dates.
But unless i am missing something i could not find these numbers on the dating sites like http://www.stationaryengine.org/lister_dating3.html. Can you help with this & what the LD, DH, DHR & the numbers mean.

Engine 1-----Lister 1.5HP / 750 RPM NO: 2329LD113 YEAR 1963
Engine 2-----Lister 1.5HP / 700 RPM NO: 4556DH2 Year 1952
Engine 3-----Lister 1.5 HP/ 700 RPM NO: 1/29430 Spec 28DHR Year 1949

Thank you.

PS: Also, there seems to be conflict on the last one DHR if this means revers rotation.?

If the DHR is a reverse rotation then that's correct but it could also be radiator cooled as sometimes they were stamped DHR and reverse rotation DHZ. Is it a reverse rotation one?

Lister D Hopper and Reverse Rotation, but could also be a mis-stamping.

It might be worth posting a few pictures and include some of the data plates.
