Unusual Marquis ?

Just bought a 20" Marquis with a BSA F12 Sloper.  The engine platform is drilled and tapped to accept  different engines and the RH side plate is drilled to take the cast iron "bumper" usually seen on Briggs engined machine to protect the recoil starter. The id plate does not have the usual Mk**  number.

Any thoughts ?

I wonder if the mower was at

I wonder if the mower was at one time in its life a factory development machine and used as a test bed for different power units. If so you may find other indications as you dig further into inner workings of the mower.
