Nice. I can imagine the hummmm of it at full chat.
is it a Detroit 8V72 or 12V72 sort of thing?
we had a v6 in a Bedford KM to fix once that sounded really nice. Picked up like a petrol.
The straight 6 sound really good too, heared one in a landing craft, think it was a Grey marine badged one.

Bit of a project I was involved with - repower of 16V2000 MTU's before, during, arriving and after. Messy job, the old engines leaked oil like a sieve.

'scuse me if I'm being thick, but it never occurred to me that you could have a 2 stroke diesel, dunno why, just never thought about it. I'm assuming that it's just the "top end" that's 2 stroke & the bottom end, crank, bearings etc will be conventionally oiled.

lifeboat engines are 2 stroke diesels but your right Dave they are not pure 2 strokes as they do have a valve down the cylinder
Remember one particular Tyne class lifeboat getting knocked down & pushed backwards by a very large wave that stalled one engine and with the force of the water acting on the prop restarted it up in reverse .
Though it took the crew a few moments to work out what was wrong
Fantastic distinctive growl though if you ever hear one .

Most of the marine Detroit Diesels are 2 stroke. (might even be all of them.)
