I've never dealt with single cylinder air cooled diesels, so I'm not qualified to say.  There are members with experience on these, so hang tight, they will be along.

I prefer the Lister Petters. They are big, heavy, and unstoppable. Designed life is 20,000 hours and many going twice that. 

As far as Chinese go from what I gather Carroll Stream (sp?) seems to have a good reputation for parts and support.

No Experience with Hatz for Lamborghini but these have both been around for a long time as has Duetz. What are you looking to do with the diesel?  :tapping_fingers:

the carrol stream motors are what i have been looking at....i am thinking of re powering a Bean Cutler with one, for actuall work based use.

The nice thing with the single air cooled's are that you can plug and play personally i like the kubota's and Yanmar.. Liquid cooled engines but thats not always the best option i know Alot of knock off (knocking all day long rattle your teeth out)yanmar singles running around my friend has a sears Gt with a 6.7 hp clone and it works well he likes it just its difficult to start in the cold (no glow plugs or intake heater) there are Alot of generators power-packs and water pumps used by fire-departments running yanmar engines i would shoot for a yanmar or a lister peters

thanks everyone for the input. the carrol stream singles i was looking at do have glow plugs, and some even came with a start switch and harness for like what you said, plug and play. i like no fuss, no muss.

If money was no object, then I would use one of the name brand engines. Well money is an object for me so I would go with one of the carrol stream engines. If I had the cash to drop I would put one in my snapper 1650.

money IS an issue. i did find a used yanmar 1 cyl on ebay....would that be a better choice? by the looks of the carrol streams, they must be a clone of the yanmar.
