Single cylinder diesel engine - stock code 9590

It's a compact, lightweight engine - oil-cooled, rated by the manufacturer at 5.6bhp at 3600rpm. Fitted with 12 volt electric start, the engine has a balance shaft to reduce vibration.

Turns over freely with valve lifter engaged, good compression when released.
