Carl,
        Engine number EL469 features in the LDMCC machine register, and was, at one time, in frame number TF356. It is listed as a 1928 SW5.
 All frames had a TF prefix and only had a maximum of 4 digits.

  Hope this helps,
                           Regards,
                                         Eddie.

that is interesting Edie I purchased the frame and engine from the son of a gentleman that passed away about 20 years ago and had not moved in all that time . there is a lot of rust on the frame and the only number I could find was 10222 will get the frame blasted and see what I can find thanks so much .

Carl,
        The frame number should be stamped on the left hand side of the gearbox mounting lug, roughly in line with the frame top tube.

  Regards,
                Eddie.
