AEC Engine Variations

The AEC Spare Parts catalogue divides engines into two sections: A51 or A52. Second column below is the DTO nos. and should be referenced to the tables above.

A51

A220L 1/B, 1/2, 1/5 Engine complete with flywheel (belt tensioner & dynamo)
A220S 1/3, 1/20 Engine complete with flywheel (right-angle drive)
A220W 1/6 Engine as A220S with two oil-pressure switches
A220Y 1/7, 1/11, 1/11B Engine as A220L less dynamo
These all had 18" flywheels and were supplied without fuel filter, fuel pipes and electrical installations. I also believe that all A51s originally had winch gear fitted to assist with engine swaps. Further details would be appreciated.

A52

A220AC 1/12, 1/14 (24-off), 1/16, 1/17,1/21, 1/22, 1/23 (6-off), 1/25, 1/27, 1/31, 1/33, 1/40, 1/57 Engine complete with flywheel, twin fuel filter, fuel pipes & fittings and electrical installations (right-angle drive)
A220AJ 1/26 Engine as A220AC less air compressor and one oil-pressure switch
A220AK 1/51, 1/56 Engine as A220AC with 3" shorter oil filler tube
A220AL 1/34 Engine as A220AK with Simms starter motor
A220AZ 1/32 Engine as A220AJ less fan shaft spacer and with different electrical installations
A220BB 1/55 Engine as A220AC with Simms starter motor
These all had 20" flywheels and were supplied with fuel filter, fuel pipes and electrical installations.
