Bill, if/when you dismantle for cleaning, please show us how it is made.....
Hey Gluehand, I have the unit toally apart and cleaned. I'll try and get some paint this week.
Will post some photos of the parts tomorrow for you to see.
The quality of the older stuff is nothing short of amazing as with most items on this planet with some age to them.
I'm pretty sure that goes for people too.

Engine test data, a big thank you to Downunder

Many thanks to Downunder for his post,

which is the following statement:


For those unaware of it, I've been through both the diesel and glow topics and collected together all the engine test reports scattered through all those pages here.

So Reggie , it will be the FMO 6cc than. But then I missed the 2 exhaust rings. (I look in the book of Mike Clanford)
Thanks for the answer.

You have nice looking diesels which we all like to see. The more pictures, the better.

Thanks for the pics Bill...it looks great..!
As I mentioned, until I read the specifications, I had no idea that this unit is geared...interesting...!
That seems to be the original prop/shaft as well.

Happy "hammeriting"..!
