Default Trying to identify this stationary Diesel

I thought I'd posted this in the right place... but no replies so it's here too:

Visiting a bloke in northern NSW, he showed me an engine he'd bought on a water pump setup and found to be siezed. That's why the pics show a lump of timber in one cylinder, he wants to clobber the piston to get it moving without damaging it.

But he's afraid he won't be able to get the parts he needs unless he knows what it is, and there are no identifying marks or brand names on any part of it.

So can anyone here help, please?

It's a 4-cyl engine perhaps 3-litres or a bit larger, I didn't measure anything.

Here are pictures:


Front with heads and pan off


Top of engine with head off (understatement personified!)


Underside showing pickup and other detail



The balance of the pics are in another post to follow.

The individual heads from a couple of angles


Crank and rods from underneath.

A couple of outstanding points here. First the rods are bolts without nuts and the big ends are split at an angle. The crank looks to be fully machined and you can just see in there that there's a bolt with some kind of caps on the main bearing centre. Maybe a facility for cleaning the oil galleries?

Main bearing caps are huge and stamped with numbers, they have castellated nuts with split pins.


Finally, the valve covers.

Even guesses will be taken at this stage, if he gets it to turn over (it's been out in the weather a while) he might need gaskets (head gaskets are copper) or something.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Ray,she doesn't look too bad at first peek.Before the owner starts hammering that piece of wood may I suggest that he removes the big end caps and sees if it is crank siezed or bore siezed!From what I can see on your photos there is some bore glazing in the centre pair of cylinders but no obvious broken bits.Also check that the starter has not jammed on the ring gear.Is the cam gear free.That should give him a bit of a lead in,please keep us in the loop,Norm

That engine has some similarities to a KT series Cummins. Maybe an early version of it. I have never seen a 4 cylinder one though.

I would recomend that you put a steel plate under that stick of wood before you pound on it. One that covers the top of the piston so as to not knock a hole in the piston.....My 2cents worth....Happy New Year All

Hi,

Look for any numbers stamped on the fuel injector bodies. Also any info on the injection pump tag may help. Let me know and I will look them up for you and maybe identify what you have there.

Ray, Did you ever get a confirmed identification of the diesel?
