Hi I recently purchased an engine which has the numbers as shown in the attached pictures. Any advice on the identification would be great.

Number on the crank case just below the cylinder - SMQA 6015
Number on the gearbox cover - ND 505

The last word on ID will be from the Royal Enfield Owners Club in England who have the surviving records. Go to www.royalenfields.com and look for chairman Graham Scarth's blurb on the right sidebar.
There is a hasty copy of the engine factory records in circulation. It indicates the engine was built in early 1959, intended for a Super Meteor, altho experience is many of them ended up in Indian Trailblazers. The gearbox number that counts is the number on the front of the crankcase, probably on the bike's right side, or your left when facing the numbers. The gearbox number is not on the covers, but on the top of the main case, near the joint with the covers. On the bike's right side, small, and often covered by grime. Enfield bought gearboxes from Albion and, after assembling with an engine, its' number was copied onto the crankcase. In your engine's case, likely H followed by 2 letters and 3 numerals.

Looks like a 1959 Super Meteor motor, if the gearbox came with it it should be HDY XXX. For greater detail follow Chris's advice.

Regards Charles
