Same as Martin's picture. This one still has lining on the fuel tank and flywheels. BLACKSTONE is painted on the block. Still trying to load my pictures.

The JP, which is considerably smaller than the OP, is 1400lbs in my book.

There was a similar large Blackstone at GDSF this year, while not beautiful to look at, it certainly had "presence", I spent ages looking at it, even though there were more "attractive" engines nearby, this one had the size and rarity factor, I had not seen one before.

I would love to add one to my small Blackstone collection. I think they are beautiful engines.

I really like the op engine I had the pleasure of starting one for a older chap, I had to crank it on the handle for a while whist he bled up the injector. But once we got an injector creak he threw the compression lever and she started very easerly for such a big lump.

I'm rather fond of 'boxy' engines large and small so I think it is a shame this range is not seen more often on the rally field.

Here is a short video of the Blackstone OP I saw at GDSF. It looks very like the one in Martin's photo.

Here is the only photo I can find of it. I was trying (unsuccessfully) to snap the plate for ID purposes.
