Ransomes matador mk1a and nut required

Just aquired  this super Ransomes Matador mk1a , all running starts well . Just need to find a grassbox , and maybe the crank handle .  How can I find out when this made I was told 1950/ 1960s , which well is probably true , I I was hoping to narrow down to a year ,or two. 

Also hoping I can find a replacement nut. For the side cover , where should I go for that ? .

Should we be seeing an image?  A JAP engined machine I presume?

Chain case nut, LCO33 could be a starting point.

On a later machine it became LC0033 And after that A904868 but I can’t guarantee that the thread remained the same. If, as your user name suggests, you are in Essex , your Ransomes dealer is Ernest Doe at Ulting. Other depots around Essex and East Anglia.
