Ruston & Hornsby 9PB 4 1/2hp engine with Electromotor motor - stock code 6961

A Ruston & Hornsby 4 1/2 hp 9PB, nicely restored and running well (there's a short clip here). Previous owner had it mounted on a brick bed, along with its silencer and a vintage Electromotors motor which we think was used as a dynamo, belt-driven from the engine. Motor is full of period charm and lethal looking wiring.
