  1. I did not know it was a submarine engine but i knew it used 5 gallon diesel hourly and was ran regularly on tuesdays and to test it you stopped the electric pump to see if it cut in, and it did-noisily! Just to pump canal cooling water thru glass rolls. I had the “pleasure” of starting it once only courtesy of Ray Drury, ear defenders on!
