    Good evening all,

    Could anyone please date my WD2?

    Engine number is 12675
    Water cooled

    I'm lead to believe it was built in 1946, just wondered if this is correct and who it was first supplied to if possible.

    Hi Paul,
    The Wolseley Day Books are archived on this website, which means you should be able to search yourself.

    Suffice to say, (as it took approximately 1 minute to find it) Wolseley WD2 s/n 12675 was made 14 March 1947, with magneto 243857, rated at 1.5 hp. Order W1592, one of 3 engines for LJ Peel.

    Thanks for that Kev,

    I did try and have a look but I couldn't find the records for the water cooled engines, also im not a friend or supporter of the museum so couldn't get access.

    Thanks again

    You do not need to do anything but sign up which is free as is the Wolseley dating.

    When ever I get to the relevant page it says the following:-

    "these images are restricted to Friends of the museum or supporters"

    not sure if im looking in the wrong place, but what ever I do that's what comes up.

    There appears to be a recent bug. I'll bring it Paul's notice.
    Thanks for persisting.

    I just tried using the intended route. Please will you re-try via the homepage/information/Engine dating.

    thats the way im doing it, ive just tried and still no luck.
    im still getting the text above when i get to the dating area, also even if i put the engine model and number in it dosent do a thing.

    Thanks. Its an odd one.

  11. Now I know how to find the records, I was trying a different way which did not work.

    Appreciate the menus etc are in a mess at the moment but the current medication prevents sane thought :) I've already forgotten what I was writing before I get to the end of the line I am on :-(

    Will have another bash tonight.

    Just run through on a clean box not logged in and it works fine. Check you are not using a cached version of the page by refreshing with a Cntl-R

    Are you using IE or the Edge?
    I have found it works using the Edge but not IE.

    How do you mean IE or Edge? you've lost me now.

    The unspoken question is what browser are you using? Following Mark's post I tried it with Internet Explorer (version 8 running under XP) and it won't work. It works fine using Firefox under either XP or Win 7.
