i picked this up yesterday, single cylinder diesel , anyone like to guess what it is ? I,ve never seen one in the metal before , it looks like it should have a hose from the breather to the air inlet , the fitting on the side of the copper inlet unscrews .
The seller said it came from a school lab .
There is a makers plate but its in a very awkward place to get a clear picture .

Sorry about the clutter in the pictures , its been raining all day and I didn't want to get it wet

Oh nearly forgot , why does the spare injector have a wire on it ? the one on the engine has a little stub of wire remaining on it

Wire is usually for a needle lift sensor.

Well, for starters it's a Crossley, probably a BVC 1. I had one a long time ago.
Saw it recently at Astle Park.

Looks like Yours has an oil cooler fitted (the grey Serck gadget). Mine didn't have a leak-off on the injector where Yours seems to have something there, also mine had an original air cleaner/silencer fitted, with some sort of cold start gadget which looked like a stauffer greaser. Yours also has a water recirc pump fitted.

Probably an ether cup as fitted to some Enfield diesels.

Charles is correct it's a Crossley , the engine plate is fitted very low down behind the channel iron frame and I can't get to it to read it without lifting the engine off, I,ve not tried to start it yet, the oil has been over filled and I wouldn't want it to start throwing it up past the piston , I,ll drop it down a bit a rig up a tank and give it a go .

It goes with the test function of the engine, wouldn't be used commercially.

Horrible engine, I'd scrap it immediately!... there is a space, I mean a bin available in my garage
