Served my apprenticeship with John Lewis in Aberdeen and ended up in the drawing office. We built a couple of these engines under licence, for trawlers.
I recall having to draw an AK diesel by building up a picture from a drawing of each individual part. Actually still have a print of same taken from a cloth drawing. Interested.

Cheers from N.Z.

There's one in Mincarlo alongside the Heritage Quay at Lowestoft Yacht Harbour. Speak to the guys nicely and they may let you see it.
