Super Flash ID
« on: 31.07. 2020 16:52 »
I need a favor from my fellow Super Flash owners.  I have five S/F engines and they all have a Roman Numeral V stamped as shown in the image.  My four G/F semi-unit motors do not.  Were all S/F engine stamped this way?

I checked two of my engines. They both have the 'V' stamping as on yours.

V must be a batch number/ letter from the factory for exported s/f models. but what does the V stand for?

Mine also has the V on it. I also checked a number of pictures of other SF I have and they all have the V on.

Well, it looks like the "V" may indeed be the mark of the beast.
