Bloody interesting article, Paul, that wheeled dozer is a hard case machine. The Leyland engines used in the Matilda tanks were either E148/E149, E164/E165, or E170/E171 types, all were rated at 95 horsepower each and drove through a 6 speed Wilson epicyclic gearbox. I can't see how they would have got 170 horsepower out of an engine that was originally rated at 95 h.p. though. I think the Leyland tank engines were 7.4 litres/450 c.i.d. and were the forerunner of the later O.600 engine. Earlier Leyland T series diesels such as the 8.6 litre diesel were overhead camshaft engines, but the 7.4 litre/O.450 was a pushrod engine. The 7.4 litre E181 engine rated at 100 h.p. was widely used in Leyland buses.

Yep, the E181 was an improved version of the matilda motor and first fitted to the war time mkll Hippo. It was retro fitted to some buses in the UK and was installed to some exports which came here. Design wise it was not at all related to the 600 and was a dead end. However it did live on in industrial units and I have an example of a genset, also with the special style Leyland radiator.
170hp - a journo at work - he says 95 for the motor and 170 for the matilda, which is correct for the left and right motors combined total.
