I found several companies offering old-fashioned Diesel engines on the web. www.gangadhar.net is one of these. These engines are used primarily in agricultural applications.
Does anyone have experience with these type of engines?
Were engines like this used as marine engines years ago?
Yes, I understand that they weigh a ton, still, I think an engine like this would be workable for a small launch. I want to get one and fiddle around with it.
Where can I locate a suitable gearbox? Can these be made to pick up fuel from a remote tank? I have many more questions that I could get into if someone is out there with answers.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
