Hi again Ken,
the records I have indicate that all your engines where made looking at the numbers and taking a bit of licence during a three to four year period.

As in Engine # 32844 was the last engine for the year in 1945
and Engine # 54547 was the last engine for the year in 1950

I guess you could divide the total number of difference by five to get the average yearly make, but as to accuracy you could only speculate.

I have no further details of engine numbers between 45' and 50'' but you could try the Ballarat Engine Machinery Preservation Society (bemps) as I know they have must more extensive listings and where offering a dating service at there last rally, but again for the dates they didnt have I believe they took averages.

Or if your in Victoria head to Lake Goldsmith there is a Ronnie shed there with dating.

You could also contact Greg McNeice at Rallybadges he also holds a database for R and T (or rather the ealier ones ie Australs)

If I can help out further please dont hesitate to let me know.

Cheers,
Roo

Hi Ken,
Ive found some more exact dates for each year in another reference they are with the last engine number for that year and using some creative accouting:

4 hp serial no 36545 - 1945 (#32844) 1946 (#41843) so this one is mid 1945-46
3hp serial no 43396 - 1946 (#41843) 1947 (#45920) so this one is mid 1946-47
3hp serial no 45430 - 1946 (#41843) 1947 (#45920) so this one is late 1947
3hp serial no 57753 - 1949 (#54208) 1950 (#58547) so this one late 1950

Cheers,
Adam

Hello,
I have just picked up a 3 hp ronaldson and tippet type N, I was hoping I could also get some help as to dating it, its serial number is 16840. It's my first personal engine and I'm looking forward to getting stuck into it, thank you for any assistance re. Dating.
D Parker.
