What do the photos tell me:

Photo 1. Standard engine, TEA20 or TED20. I am almost sure that is a 12 volt Lucas starter? The voltage should be stamped into the casing.

Photo 2. Casting number. Doesn't mean anything.

Photo 3. Something odd? It appears there is no dash air intake vent? I have a vague recollection the early TEA20's did not have a dash vent? It appears the battery ground is still attached to the back of the dash and should be moved to a better earth.

Photo 4. Those vertical numbers (2 4 19??) are not the serial number, probably the Australian delivery number? Charles is the expert on Australian delivery numbers... :lol:

The serial number along the bottom is not readable however I think I can see an "A" and a series of numbers?

The date on the transmission housing may be the best guide? Also that data plate may clean up enough to read the serial number, with very fine sandpaper?

If it is 6 volt, 6 volt batteries are around the same price as 12 volt batteries, $100 to $150. Try Repco, Supercheap or your local tyre service.

A 6 volt battery needs a 6 volt battery charger, although most battery chargers are switchable between 6 and 12 volts.
