I reproduce the rest of the article below. It talks about the history of Enfield India and has a nice take on the creation of an industrial engine division producing small 37cc engines for irrigation and the big impact they had on the food supply in India. The article does not say, but apparently the little engines produced in a plant in Toraipakkam, 25 miles south of Madras, were vital in keeping the company afloat during a four month strike and lockout of the main Tiruvottiyur motorcycle plant near Chennai in 1966. The article claims already Enfield India was exporting to Australia, Nepal, Ceylon, Africa and the Middle East.
