Air-cooled diesel engine
This engine is a HATZ air-cooled diesel engine. It is rated at about 6 horsepower at 3000 RPM and is manufactured in Germany. The picture shows it just after I bought it. I had to back the car over the extended skids to hold it in one place. It vibrates, knocks, and smokes just like the larger diesels. These engines have been used for years in Europe and by the Amish back in Ohio for farm work and are becoming popular in this country on smaller construction equipment. I plan to use this engine on a small lawn tractor. I know this engine isn't very old but I thought it might interest some of your readers since diesels in this size, both old and new, are still somewhat of a rarity to most engine enthusiasts.
