For those interested in roughly dating National engines the attached image shows where to look. The company used the services of a forgemaster known as Mitchell and Shackleton or MS&Co for short. Every crankshaft was date stamped and can only provide the manufactured component. Some may have been laid about before they were used.

For Kegan.

NAV 59055 is a type NA size V 12"bore x 20" stroke. Dating as before

 :cheers:  Graham.

Thank you

I wonder if there are plans or drawings for engines very similar to the one my has. I am so curious to see how these crude oil engines worked. I know the engine was started on diesel and it used the exhaust to heat up the oil and then when oil was up to temperature it was switched over from Diesel to oil.

I would love to build something like this.

Thanks  for the info
