Talking Foos Jnr

G'day All
Acquired this Foos Jnr not long ago and am wondering if there is any way to roughly date these engines? This one is 4 h.p Sn 30169. Also does anyone have any dimensions or photos of an original battery box?
Thanks in advance Mick in oz.

Good looking engine Mick. Is that a fluted hopper Aermotor in the background? Kevin

G'day Kevin
Yeah it is a nice engine the Foos, and no the engine in the background is not a fluted hopper aermotor, it is in fact a Bamford open crank, but i would prefer an aermotor in its spot though!!
