unknown make of engine - any suggestions pelase ?

Reputed to be a Citroen. Two cylinder diesel, poss 10+ years old, no engine makers plate or other details on it.

Indirect water cooled; attached to a PRM80- gearbox.


I have spent about 5 hours talking to sane engineers from well known engine makers, who are flummoxed.
