Does anyone out there know the installed weight of a Stuart-Turner P55M engine?

An odd coincidence - I sought the same info for freight purposes and got some extra info. Emailed around and got a quick response from Fairways Marine (thanks guys).
I was advised the normal P55 weight 170 kilos.
The 28 page booklet from the Manual database on the semidiesel site is the only handbook available.
Also, for the benefit of others the torque setting for the head bolts is about 40lbs.
I'm a novice restorer who plans to use the P55 in a boat plus have a backup engine - learning fast, so be patient with me.
I've had responses from a few but am keen to establish/join the P55 "network".

Thanks Tim - I also plan to put my P55 into a small launch hence my interest in the weight.
In addition to the helpful folks at Fairways Marine, I'm told that email@example.com is a way to contact them via email and George Murray, firstname.lastname@example.org is also supposedly a source of parts.
And of course, the experts down under are Peter and Jo Ogborne who, I think, have recently moved to Albany on Princess Royal Harbour.
My manual makes reference to a separate manual for the P55M carburetor: have you seen that?
Thanks again for the info.

I found some amazing information from the oldengine.org web site.
On the Solex carburetter there are 19 pages of technical info - drawings and explanations - seemingly from the original booklet.
Also, there is some info on the Wipac Series A magneto - was this interchangeable with the Lucas? I don't know enough. Use the following link to the page with the Solex and Wipac info
Also, on the Lucas magneto there is info available from enthusiasts of the British motorcycle such as Vincent and Matchless. I found some excellent info on this type of magneto at http://members.aol.com/pinman1/magnetos.htm

I have only ever come across the Stuart carburettor as fitted to the P55m. I would love to get hold of the Solex model for this engine . It is a better carb ,it has an air /fuel mix adjustment . The P5 carb ,which is a Stuart carb is a good one ,it has a good air adjustment .

WANTED; carburettors for Stuart Turner P55M and P66M to fit my (first) inboard purchases. I believe the P55M should have a brass Stuart carb and the P66M a Solex carb. The engines are cheap and cheerful and I can't afford to spend too much but I would like to restore at least one to life, (probably the P66M as it's not siezed) and would be grateful for any help on this. P.S. I am in Gloucestershire England.
