Conquest and Century engine numbers

Post by Richardthwaites » Thu Apr 18, 2019 12:42 am

I'm trying to untangle the history of a DJ250 Conquest, located in Australia, which was re-built at some point using parts from two vehicles.

The current configuration is apparently a standard Conquest body, though with a Century bootlid (added chrome flashes).

Engine No. 76409
Chassis No. 85295
Body No. 013231

Can anyone tell me whether that engine number is from a Century or a Conquest? It has twin carbs that would suggest a Century, but I'm wondering if just the carbs and manifold were substituted.
