I finally had some time to dig into this engine today. Found a bleeder screw down by the injection pump. Opened it and air bubbles started coming out and then just fuel. Closed it up and then I could hear the injector working when rolling the engine over. Two pulls later on the rope and it was running! Didnít use a starting wick either.

This engine has a dipstick and I was really puzzled by it at first and then I realized it has a separate compartment on the front end of the crankcase that contains the governor and the mechanism for the injection pump, which are splash lubed by oil in there. The front main bearing may also get its lube from there since the oil pump only has lines to the rear main bearing and the cylinder.

Hereís a short video of it running.

hi guys,
it sure runs nice now, sounds ready for serious work.

seeing as how the petrol JLO motors were 'design bought' and used on small Wacker-packers,
it would not surprise me if they used these diesels too.

this is where my JLO education began:

cheers Rod.
