WLA engine numbering

Post by TadeO » Thu Sep 07, 2017 11:12 am

I would like to believe these are original WLA engines, however, for any unknown reasons all of them been in one or another way modified. Any views re incorrect fonts or number sequences or anything else would be appreciated.

The first part stamped (42WLA) stamps are good original on the first two photo's posted but the rest of the numbers are bad and are not the Harley fonts numbers.

Third picture hard to see the serial number and them are bad and not true Harley stamping either.
