I have been looking at a Spitfire MK4 that is fitted with a 1300 engine the number of which starts with GK and ends with HESS
I understand what the engine is and that it’s a large crank 1300 from the Herald range but what do the last numbers SS mean?
The engine is correctly recorded on the V5.
Could it be that this was a factory supplied engine fitted early in the cars life and that the SS is for Stanpart Spare? Just a guess.
