Re: Anybody know this engine

The engine you have is (As it says on the Crankcase) a Drone fixed Compression Diesel. It first came on the market in 1947 and was Produced by Leon the U.S. The capacity is .29 cu. ins. Seem to remember that the fuel they used had lots of Ether in it but I couldn't say for sure. Good luck with it.
