Phil Coleman's Web SiteThe Battiwallah 3.5cc diesel engine
This engine was described in "Model Engineer" in April 1947. The designer called himself "Battiwallah", but we don't know his real name.
It is a very old design, 3.5cc with three-port induction and a long stroke, but it works very well. It starts easily and has plenty of torque at a fairly low speed.
I made the crankcase out of solid aluminium.
Plans and a casting for this engine are available from E & J Winter (Australia). plan "IC9".
