It is easy to tell the two sizes of engine apart, the 75cc has 6 head bolts and the 98cc has 8 Also the early engines did not have a cast iron flywheel
The Type D came out around 1961 and had a cast steel "hitch" (earlier Majors used a fabricated hitch) and a rectangular section "Skid" replaced the round bar type used on the earlier model. Larger (10") transport wheels were used (made by the Hughes company, another member of the Wolseley group) and the transport wheel frame was much stronger and quickly detachable. Serial numbers for these machines start at MT.20,000 for the Major and MTP.5,000 for the Professional which was fitted with a larger (Clinton) engine. This Merry Tiller is almost identical to its' contemporary US Professional model. Handles that swivel to the side were listed as an option. The coupling tubes were now welded to the extension tines. At some time in the mid 1960s a belt guard was fitted. The choice of tynes became optional and most customers chose "slasher" tines instead of "finger" tines. "Type D" was no longer stamped on the nameplate.



The nameplate on yours shows Type D.  Yes there is a bit missing at the front of your machine.If you track it down you should eventually be able to get a manual.

However Sparky is right, Petrol and normal engine oil.

The Type D had a front mounted fuel tank but that engine is a replacement as it has the rear tank carburettor. This fitted in the top of the tank, and in most models a separate compartment acted as a “float chamber” though it is in fact a “wear chamber” which doesn’t need a float. The carburetion with a non standard tank may be a bit “off“, but if it works, leave it alone. Some handbooks recommend SAE 30 engine oil and some SAE 10/40 multigrade in the sump. Use neat petrol with no additive in the fuel tank.
