This one is interesting but I can't find specs on it. Manufactured in1952 as a power source for a water pump. It is a 2-stroke deisel. What is really interesting is it has a even number of cylinders and is a single row radial engine. It was done by having two master rods. The opposite cylinder fire simultaneously. Darned if I know why. Anybody have any info on this engine ?
