Observations:-  
Everybody favorite, the lovely Mills mk1. The Mills Bros. made their engines with a lot passion, otherwise it would not be such a great runner and starting engine. This is one of my favorites in the jungle of my130 diesels. If turned by hand, you will already know, its a good runner by the way it feels. Smooth like silk,and breathe like a locomotive...some engines are really special and the Mills is one of them. Of that I am sure a lot people will agree.  

Watch a short video  clip of this venerable old classic running.

  1. I have one of this little engines.
    I love the way they run.
    I found one old Mills 1.3 MK Diesel little engine in South Africa now in Irvine Ca and I would love to see it run.
    Little guy needs a fuel tank set up and the screw set up on top of the piston.
