Geoff, I don't think your photo is an Attachport Mills, it's an early original, with a wrong prop nut and washer. Unfortunately, if you had to replace the lugs, you won't be able to see the original numbers.

Thank you BE , I bow to your supperiour knowledge . I do have the old lugs as one was broken off completely and the other was pulled out with a bit of crankcase when the owner tried to start it after purchase on the TREADED BAY as a mint condition example . On one lug 30 ( right hand from front ) and the LH with crankcase piece is 05 . Setting up and picking up the backplate thread and making the fuel system with shutoff work again was a bit of an exercise . I did know it was a Mills of some sort and when I saw Reggie's pic thought it was one of those. Maybe I should make the right prop retainer nut setup for it ,what does it look like ?
