Diesel - Hot-Bulb Engines
The Cross diesel engine shown in the pictures below was a four-stroke, and went against the trend of the time for two-stroke
engines. The engines developed 10hp per cylinder (BM) and 30hp per cylinder (EM) at up to 350rpm, and used blowlamp heating
for starting only, a continuous lamp not being required once under way.
The location of the flywheel was considered unusual for the period, situated between the engine and the reversing gear, most
others having the engine flywheel at the non-driving end of the crankshaft.
