From what year is my A7 engine?
« on: 05.07. 2008 16:46 »
I`m wondering what year the engine on my A7 was made.
The engine number is CA7 171.
The engine is older that the frame, where the number is GA7 19111

Can anyone of you help me with this?

If I interpret the list found at the attached link corrrectly, the engine is from 1954 and the frame from 1960.

Edit: Yes, I see. I did not pick up on the fact that the list I was looking at stopped at 1960.
