As discussed in this post viewtopic.php?f=48&t=10250
I am slowly building up a database of the various changes during WNG production. I would ask again that if anyone has copies of WNG parts books to let me know which ones they have available to copy / send electronically so that I can increase the knowledgebase I am working from.
Also if anyone has any insight into various changes that knowledge would be useful.
I have a question re the engine mounting plates:
I see there was a change in part number for the rear engine mounting plates in 1943:
WNG '40 to '43:
RH 2305-35 (same as pre war civi)
LH 2306B-33 (same as pre war civi)
WNG '43 onwards:
Parts lists states that these superseded the previous plates but are interchangeable with them
Post war singles parts books revert to the prewar / WNG '40-'43 part numbers (until 1952/3)
So....does anyone (especially those who have a number of different year WNG's) have any ideas what the change was in 1943 that required a new part number. The magneto mount, engine mountings, gearbox mountings, mudguard mounting, battery tray mounting, footrest support mounting points must all be the same or they would not have been interchangeable.
I have read that some owners have found an additional hole in the RH plate for the clutch cable to pass through, although if this was the change it does not explain the LH plate changing as well.
