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

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

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

The wife thinks there's no hope for me.
