Specialist Restorers of Vintage Diesel Engines

Here at MPS Vintage Diesels we specialise in the restoration and supply of vintage diesel engines and usually have in stock Gardner LWs and LX/LXBs, Kromhout LWs and LSs and Lister JP/JS and JKs ready for restoration. Although our primary business is engines for marine use we also recondition engines for many other uses including generators, railway locomotives, trucks and buses. All our engines are restored to the highest standards and each engine is individually finished to meet the customers requirements.

Our engine reconditioning is complemented by our own in house fuel injection reconditioning facilities allowing us to provide reconditioning services for most Bryce, Bosch and CAV/Delphi mechanical injection pumps and injectors for our engine restoration and to our customers when required for maintenance and repairs whilst in services. 

We pride ourselves on our use of British made parts wherever possible and using British specialist craftsmen. Many of our parts are made for us by the original OEM suppliers to the original manufacturers specification and in some cases to higher standards made possible by improvements in technology over the years.

This website has been developed to provide an online information resource relating to many vintage oil and diesel engines, including Dorman, Gardner, Kromhout, Lister and Ruston. Whether you are interested in stationary, automotive, traction or marine application engines this site has a wealth of information to keep these old engines in service.
