I  have one of these beautiful old engines--Mine was made in December 1930 making it about one year older than me! ! They are that basic that
you don't really need a manual, but if you go to  www.wolseleystationaryengines.org  you can download an original 24 page Spare Parts Book which
is handy {not that you can buy the parts!}  also a single page instruction sheet.
Also worth getting is David W. Edgingtons  book "WOLSELEY STATIONARY ENGINES 1909-1975
Have Fun!!!   Cheers  Don.

Hi Don thanks for the information. The engine is on hold as my friend who has the engine was involved in a serious car accident and is currently in hospital . Regards Rudy

Hi Rudy. There were 2 types that I know of. One uses a rod and slide mechanism, and the other uses a sissor action driving an iris plate. My 4hp uses the rod and slide. I'm searching for another float bowl and float assembly.

Thanks for that .mi e is the scissor type .the bit I am missi g is the complete brass float assembly. The book shows a top feed and the one one it is a bottom feed which cant work. If you have a photo of the brass assembly please forward it to me so that I can keep a look out. Regards Rudy

The thing you are missing is the letter "n" in many words.
