A 17 HP Ruston Hornsby or a 2 Cylinder Kahlenberg....:) I've passed on a couple Rustons and Kicked Myself Later:bonk:

I have a 15 HP Fairbanks Y and like it but a 25 is a Little Big for me....

Most dream of the exotic. Me I'd be happy with a FMYH but most of all Lister CS's do it for me,built by skilled hands and known the world over for simplicity, reliability and longevity.

How about a nice 567 or 645 EMD or a 38TD 8 1/8 Fairbanks Morse? An atlas would be nice also, saw one along side the road in Bremerton today!

Mine would be a St. Maries ot Mary's how ever they spell it any size would be fine the biggest I know of is a thirty horse Iv'e be told of but haven't seen yet. A good freind has a 20 hp. and another has 2 a 2hp and a 5hp I may be wrong about those sizes but it don't mater I'd just like to have one.:D

Most medium sized diesel engines are nice to be around, but some are nicer than others ;) I can't get too excited by the tiddlers.

The Ruston & Hornsby horizontal diesels are very fine engines mechanically and run like big clocks. Listers are good too, and we have both, but the 1ZHR Ruston & Hornsby that we have is always going to be our favourite. It was also made in the mid 1960's, which people never believe when we tell them.

For me it's a toss up.....either a 1 cyl Fairbanks Y Vertical or a 6 cyl :eek:

....that's cause I already have a 4 cyl Kahlenberg and a 25 hp Fairbanks YH.:D

......:rolleyes: ...but then on second thought maybe an Atlas would be nice too....

The wife thinks there's no hope for me.:bonk:
