In 1962 while in college I operated a municipal diesel-electric plant with a max out-put of about 800 KW. (hope my decimal is right) It had a 2, a 3 and a 6 cylinder diesel powered units for generation, of the same vintage as the 2 cylinder pictured here. The holes in the flywheel allowed you to rotate the piston with a long bar, to the proper position so that when compressed air was applied to the intake, the engine would rotate and start. There was also a opposed piston engine, started with air, like the one pictured. I believe that this engine was two cycle, had a blower on it and was used a lot for propulsion in ship-board operations. All these engines were Fairbanks Morse.
