I am sure one of our ex submariners will correct me, but are these pistons a little on the large side for a sub.

Hi gents ,

for my opinion, these pistons suits well a submarine engine room, i know UB 7 german subs of ww2 had MAN 4stroke engines of 400 mm bore , having 6 to 9 cylindrs in line .

Is that a fuel injector test pump in the foreground.

Three of the piston look the same. The second from the left looks like the new rings to be fitted are stored on the bottom of the skirt.

can anyone tell what make of diesel these are from.
