After searching for a diesel engine
I just want the engine to have 4 cyl , because maybe I don't have the patience to make the engine have more than 4 cyl
Maybe this is what I like
Maybe I'll make one

Lovely engines!
I spent 10 years being pushed around by a 6L3B. Great memories.
I have often pondered building one, it would have to be petrol but in the spirit of the original diesel. Quite a few resources available online with good pictures and drawings. The original workshop and parts books had lovely accurate drawings of the components. For sure you can get a copy for a reasonable price.

HHi H Pearce !

Do you have suggestions ? I'm about to start designing it.

Kromhout constructed this engine in license from Gardner Diesel. Maybe interesting to know that the Kromhout machineshop/shipyard is located adjacent to the site of, and is a direct descendant from, the main shipyards of the VOC, where the ships were built for the trade with East Asia, in Amsterdam since the 17th century. To this day it exists as 'Warfmuseum 't Kromhout'.
