With the description, Massey Ferguson is the first to come to mind. What color was it?

 

Massey is mostly "Perkins" diesel engines.

Buda Diesel engine Co. was bought up by A/C in the late 1953 giving A/C a 6 cyl. 230CID engine for their WD-45.

MAN Motorwerke Augsburg Nürnberg? But that's the wrong sign. Here's the KHD sign ulmer-muenster-magirus-deutz.jpg

I thought a fella named Diesel did that...

 

Yep, you're right, my mistake. When Rudolf Diesel build his engine, he was employed at the Motorwerke Augsburg. His work was sponsored bei Friedrich Krupp Krupp.jpeg

Then he founded the Dieselmotorenfabrik Augsburg - no logo

 

Later the MAN was established. The lion in the logo is the "Büssing"-lion. The original is nearly 1000 years old and can be visited in Braunschweig, a town near Hanover man-büssing.jpeg

Edit: MAN is well known for its gigantic ship Diesel engines!

 

That's all - no idea anymore

Detroit and Cummimngs were real popular in this country. Lister through out the world. Good Luck, Rick

Actually it's  Cummins. Not cummings. They and Cat are the best known.

If you are talking about cars then the obvious answer for a North American audience would be VW! They have had diesels in passenger cars longer than anyone else in North America and have been able to continue offering them even with strict EPA requirements.

I tried them all, they do not match. If I had the Nook with me, I'd post the  pic.
