I think they are mid 30s Hornet saloon 12hp and 14hp engines Dominic. Unless anybody knows differently.

107a would be a 12hp, dating from 1934 and it will have a a cross flow head,178a is the 14hp which is similar in design and dates from 1936.
Dave Palmer is really the man to contact with regard to parts availability and overhaul, he will also be able to tell you if these later engines will be a straight forward installation in your car

I agree with Graham, Dom. Parts for these engines are now becoming difficult to find, along with parts generally for early 30's and older Wolseleys. Dave Palmer is the Register's technical adviser on these models and he should be able to advise you. However, unfortunately he doesn't go 'online' and hence you will need to either ring or e-mail him. His contact details are listed on this website and in our magazine, Wolseley World.
