sorry i don't have your specs but i'm a heavy diesel tech. if it hasnt ran since '96 the rings may not be seatet well any more due to thicken oil in the ring pack. but i'll tell you its proably fine, its a good engine and you said it's rebuilt. if you want to be very carful than pour marvel mystery oil or automatic trans fluid in the cyl. to loosen the rings and rotate the engine with the nozzles out. note if started after this proceedure i did not ruin your motor the smoke will go away give it time.

'Urgently needed a diesel engine for a generator set. Found one that suited on DieselEngineTrader. It is very easy to find what you are looking for!'

Trond Paulsen, Norwegian Maritime Equipment A/S

'I had hundreds of "hits" on your website which generated 5 or 6 inquiries from all over the world; Germany, The Philippines, Korea, Sweden, and Spain. I sold all 3 of my engines to a buyer from South Korea. Your website was invaluable to me in selling these engines; no other ads that I ran produced any inquiries.'

Gary Sommerfeld, Manager, Marine Operations, Phillips Cruises & Tours, Anchorage, Alaska

'I listed a surplus Watermota diesel on DieselEngineTrader. It took a few months to sell, but I was delighted as the engine was quite obscure and I never thought anyone would buy it!'
