Ransome GM
« on: 17 October, 2019, 06:55:51 pm »
HI got to look at the Ransome today and am unsure how to tell the model. on the motor is stamped MG29212 . The motor was seized but after a little searching it turned out to be a seized Wico A magneto. I have never seen one seized ,but there you go. Once I find the model I will obtain a manual and progress. Regards Rudy

Hi Rudy, I have 2 of these little crawlers in fairly ordinary condition. The idea was 2 make one good one out of the pair.Both engines are now
dismantled & progress has come to a stop . You will know how these things happen!  But in the meantime I have acquired a lot of info about
them.I think you will find the engine number is actually MGE9212 which indicates it is from a Model MG6 and probably built about1958
The tractor model & number should be on a brass plate on the back or side of tractor--but sometimes the plate has gone missing.
Good Luck with this & keep posting progress  Regards Don.

Hi Don found the plate and it say MG5  number 7325
 On the front of the engine is cast MGE 1189
On the side of the engine is stamped MGE 9212.
I hope that clears that up. have just sorted the valves would you happen to know the clearance please. Will try to source a manual.   Regards Rudy
