It's an AJS 1938 250cc twinport. It would have had a magneto and twin high or low exhausts held onto the heads with radial finned clamps (not like a Triumph.) Unfortunately the 38 parts list isn't illustrated so isn't very helpful. Do a search on google to see what it looked like.

model 12 250 was coil ignition, looks like your engine is a mixture of models.
