you should have a plate under the steering wheel with the serial # on it. hard stamped, TE or TO or some such then a hand stamped serial number. That initial number gives you the model and the serial number gives you the year.

Well it is a TEA20, just don't know if it is the 80 or 85 engine. Is there a plate on the dash?

There is another casting date behind the generator. If the water pump is attached to the block, it is an 80 mm. If the water pump is on the head, with a plate covering the old pump spot, it is an 85 mm.

You said aluminum transmission and I suspected a TEA. I believe that aluminum is actually magnesium.
Others here with vast more knowledge should be chiming in shortly. . .

First of May 1950? or Jan 5th? I forgot. The tag says 'exchange'??? So a replacement engine? With 80mm rather than newer 85mm parts? ... and has 'Triumph' on the tag... wonder when that started? Could this engine been intended for a Triumph car?
BTW, many years ago I was told by a former junk man from Cheshire, all the alloy castings in a fergie were from a yard in Merseyside full of scrapped WW2 aircraft.

May 1950 you are right Tony .
The plate is most likely denoting a factory rebuilt engine . The alloy is called 'Electron' and is an amalgam of aluminium and manganese , flammable at high temperatures and easily corroded if water enters the gearbox.
