Along with the usual Brit sources, you might try tomm.com.au, an Australian site, as they seem to've had a good number imported there. Good luck.

435061 is mid 1960's, probably 1964. Our 1ZHR is 435070:



That was sold 31st January 1965, so probably a 1964 build engine, possibly they built a batch of them.

The Corn Elevator engine is probably back in the 1940's or so.

Email Ray Hooley, his contact details are on this website:
