Looking for some Petter info


Hello all,
I've got an Amish neighbor who has a tired Petter Diesel,Type PH2 AVA SN: 69136-PH2 that he would like to rebuild. It starts hard and burns oil. Does anyone have a PDF of a manual for this engine and where re-build parts like pistons, rings, and bearings can be purchased?

We do not have a manual or year of manufacture of this and I don't have a lot of experience with these engines.

Thanks for the help!


Yea, a horsepower gearset would work a little bit but when they engage the belt on their big planer I think the horse would quit.
I won't be back up there for a while but when i do go, I'll get some photos.
