You may be on your own, P&H is still in business but they won't even admit they ever built that engine...

Hi Zeb, welcome to smokstak! The engine in your car is very unusual, literature on it is scarce and I am sure every part that is needed for your engine will have to be made. I hope you have a machine shop or access to one. Out of curiosity, what is the bore on the liners that are in the tub on the seat? They look far too big for the engine that is in your car. They appear to be for the much larger 387, 487 or 687 diesels. I look forward to seeing more pictures of this engine and car as you work on it, it sure is an interesting combination. The P&H two cycle diesel caught my attention several years ago, I have some literature on these engines, but sadly in this day and age one can count every known running P&H on one hand.

Chris

Don't have time to dig right now, but believe I have a note re P&H Guru...
Also believe (if not confused with another engine) that problem with O-rings leaking can be averted by draining after use...sounds like more trouble than its worth but apparently saves unusual engines difficult to find parts for...
Will advise this PM...

Regret to advise I drew blank on any P&H Guru; concur the company tries to forget the engines...
There's been a fair amount of previous comments here; one of them may've mentioned a parts and/or advice source; you may have to search Pawling & Harnischfeger or just Harnischfeger to pick up all the Google references...
