Have a look at the register sheet. (AVAILABLE ONLINE) I reckon U2211 fits in there nicely and may well be the original match to the frame.
Probably about May 1937 build
U prefix on engine number means it is an Ulster engine although, the top end originally would have been a bronze head with parallel inlets and radial exhaust valves.
