The later brass bayonet capped tanks had a smooth end cap joins so that looks more like the steel tank. I would hazard a guess that is a "C" which would be a year or two earlier than the date of the advert. How long did ships take to get to Oz in those days?

I'd say you were spot on Hugo! so circa 46 & note the skeletal bracket this is the first documented illustration of it on a dateable motor.

But bear in mind that the art work for that printer's plate was hand etched & therefore expensive, it tended to be still in use well after the motor on it was no longer produced, Charles P & I found many examples of this happening in magazine adds, it didn't help at all when we were researching production dates.
We even found ON & OP pics on post war adds.

Please forgive us a few small errors.
We can't really expect John to devote all of his spare time to editing this site to keep it 101 % accurate, & the errors do allow us to know when other sites have recycled our work no matter how much they deny it.
Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot.

The info is so cool!

A question bugging me for a while with this that was in a bunch of Gull parts many years ago?

Steel Tank. Had a copper unplated bayonet with silver colour plated breather. It is still around somewhere.....the cap.

It is a clamped tank. Fuel tap on the port side under the cap.
