Default Can anyone identify this stationary Diesel?

I'm new here and I think this is the right place to post this...

Visiting a bloke yesterday, 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.
