A friend is in Belize and he sent me this photo of a piece of machinery he saw there. It looks like it has an air cooled diesel or kerosene engine to me. Some kind of a buried cable laying machine?

Powered by a 6-cylinder watercooled gasoline engine of some 2100 cubic inches! (The cylinders are water-jacketed.)

This is just what I was talking about back in the tractors section about a guy griping about a lot of OT posts. I said that at least on this site you can have coffee with someone who knows something. This just epitomizes what I said. Not only did you guys recognize it, but sent hard proof as to what it was.

Impressive.
