Yeah, you're right Lang, should have paid more attention!
Wonder how they used to keep tension on the chains? Maybe something similar to a Bren Carrier where they had an idler sprocket and a humongous big compression spring??
What do you think it may be, the engine?
Bit hard to see because the compressor on the right of the picture, I thought the dual oil bath air filters you can see under the bonnet on the opposite side, maybe a Hercules??
I can't find pictures of anything which matches this engine, including searching for suggestions posted here. Are those spark plugs pointing straight at us? Is that a coil sticking up between cylinders 4 and 5?
Mack and most of the other engines I could find pictures of, have the manifolds on this side.
It does seem to have two heads of 3 cyl's each.
Nowhere is there warmth to be found
Among those afraid of losing their ground
The Mack Lanova was designed by a Swedish engineer by the name of Lanova, he started by designing a diesel motor for Volvo before the second world war, he then went to Germany where he designed a diesel motor for Henschel, after which still before the war he went to the U.S. where he designed the Mack Lanova motor, he designed all three of these motors using the same shape explosion chambers, the only difference between them was that the Volvo had 2 heads, the Henschel had three heads, but for the Mack he went back to two heads.
Waukesha is starting to look good though I can only find photos of left side at the moment. Not BUDA, Cummins, GM , Hercules or any British one I have seen so far.
