Qualcast Suffolk Punch 43sk Engine ID

I'm planning on restoring my mower this summer and I've been researching a fair bit to make sure I know what im taking on. I am posting here to find out the engine my mower has, I've gathered its either an A114 or an A98, I searched the forums but was unable to find info to help me. I have checked the carb as i know looking for FCH-20-13A or 11A on a dellorto can help- couldnt find anything- its all assembled right now but i assumed it would be stamped on the outside anyway

I'm thinking now its a Tillotson carb, i saw a diagram wristpin linked on a thread i saw

I will try to attach the photos here.

Any guidance/advice related to my mower from the fountains of knowledge on OLC would be appreciated

Cheers, Andy

I think A114. Think the

I think A114. Think the mechanical governor ( lever from back of crankcase) is A114 and the A98 had air vane governor and usually Zenith carb ( link from back of cowling near the top)

Correct as far as it goes but while the original A98 did have an air vane governor, points ignition and a zenith carb, it was soon replaced by a modified version, still called an A98 but with a mechanical governor, Dellorto carb and electronic ignition. So those features alone can't be relied upon to distinguish between the A98 and A114 engines.

This may be of interest

There is one big clue in the photo, it has to be an A114, it has an electric starter, no A98 had one.
