Default English-Built Diesel Power Plant at Portland

This year I saw an exhibitor who had a nice power plant set up and running at the Portland, IN show. It was trailer-mounted and was powered by a 1 cyl horiz. diesel (maybe a Ruston?) Anybody know who the owner was?

Hi,
That was a Ruston Hornsby 14 HP with a 2 1/2 starting engine. I don't know the guys name but this is his phone # 716-496-6010. At Portland he was asking $10.000 for the set up.
Good luck,
Lou

The owner is Phil Antonio and he lives at Arcade, NY. Phil is a regular GEM advertizer (Phil's Quality Engines) and he handles good stuff.

Thanks guys. $10,000? That makes that toy a bit outside of my budget!!
