W4 serial number tag orientation

Postby artc » Thu May 10, 2007 1:36 pm

when we redid David's W4 a couple of years ago, we never replaced the tag. he got a new one a while back, but because the tag is mounted on the cluth housing sideways, we are unsure which way to orient it. My W6 is at the Zagray Farm, so i can't look at it readily.

I went and looked at Guy Fay's Originality Guide.. and guess what.. :?: :idea: :!: :wink: :D

On page 67 bottom photograph, it clearly shows the Serial Number tag and it appears that it is orientated parallel to the housing joint, with the top of the tag toward the front of the W-4. Can't read the lettering as it is pretty faded, but the tag is clear and you can make out roughly where the SN would be.
