Does the letter T after a serial number on an Amanco Hired Man have any significance?

Think it means it had coil ignition rather than a mag, could be miles out tho.

I'm not sure about that, Rob.

I was going to suggest that the "T" meant a throttle governed Hired Man engine, but that's probably wrong too.
....and maybe not all throttle governed engines had it either.
Maybe 1945ruston can confirm if he has a throttler or a hit 'n miss engine.

A few Amanco oversize 4 and 6hp engines have an "A" after the number, but no one seems to know what that means either.

Thanks, this makes a lot of sense as it is a throttle governed engine

Well that's a possibility then, but I can't say for sure 100% if it's right.

Could also mean Tank cooled Philip, seen one of those before now....

Yep, anything is possible, and nothing is certain in this game.

There is 3hp Amanco pictured in SEM May 2019 with the serial number 502983T. It is a throttle governed engine.

Thanks for that, mine is throttle controlled so that makes sense
