Can someone tell me something about this engine,Marshall diesel-engine.
Its very pretty
Agree with Roland and not a common engine either. Looking at the "A" to "Z" it looks very similar to an "H" type. If the makers plate is still fitted what details are stamped on it?
Would like to see some more photographs, it looks very interesting.
The photo is not so good. But I write what is stand on the plate.

Can anyone tell me more about this Marshall-engine? I have not found nothing about Marshall diesel-engines on the internet only Marshall steam-engines, the engine is type H and the serialnumber is 86000.
The type H was introduced in 1924, the range of engines was from 15bhp to 50bhp @250rpm
F.J.Cribb was the chief engineer at Marshall's who designed and put into production the engine. Unfortunately he died soon after the introduction of the engine, so further styles of this engine were not developed.
It is not known when production ceased, but it seems it was before 1939 as competition was very great.
This information is from "The Story of The Britannia Iron Works" by Michael R Lane.
The engine No. is is interesting, being such a round number.
Thank you for the information David.
