Enfield VS1

Can anyone help with info or better yet an online manual? A friend has just
bought one & is at a stand for information.

Nice engines which look particularly well with all the alloy bulled up. I have only the barest specs which appear in the British Diesel Engine Catalogue 1961 edition (is it my imagination or does the British Internal Combustion Engine Manufacturers' Association coat of arms have quite the campest Neptune (or is it Posidon?) you have ever seen?) the highlights of which are:-
4bhp @ 1250 rpm,6bhp @ 1800 rpm, Bore & Stroke 85x100mm, Dry weight 224 lb.
BTW Kim, is the Enfield 'sloper' you have a VS or the smaller 350?

Thanks for that Nick.
The ex-Dan Howden sloper is certainly a single, but it is a gurt lump of a thing. I'd suspect it of being bigger in the middle than 350cc - although I'll shortly hear I'm wrong, I'm sure ;o))

I'm sure this has been mentioned before, but the 'sloping' Enfields were made specially for Stothert and Pitt of Bath. I think they had to slope so they would fit within the confines of the roller in which they were installed!

Perhaps my question should have been; is the Enfield 'sloper' based on the VS or the smaller 350? This example:-

to have more in common with the VS from the shape of the timing chest etc, but the Diesel Engine Catalogue Illustrates a Stothert and Pitt 32WD "Vibroll" as an application for the 350.

I didn't know that Philip, thanks. Does anyone have a photo of a Sloper in situ?
