Identify this engine?

Postby Mike Attew » Fri Mar 22, 2019 3:52 pm

I have just picked up another engine. The engine number is 1889772. It is a 1256 but what sort of year? I also believe the dizzy is a Bosch.

I was also told it was a runner but clearly wasn't, the oil was mayo and the bores, although poor photo's show too much scratching. I am going to rebuild it anyway as a bit of tutorial for my son. The worst top corrosion was no 4.
