Four cylinder supercharged two stroke vertical diesel.

This engine is held in store at the moment but we hope that it will eventually be used to restore the second engine in the Knocker White tug currently at The Museum of London. Fitted with two SS4 Petter engines, probably the only remaining installation of its type.
