'oil baron' is unable to post at the moment, but kindly sent in this information about the engine.

Quote from: oil baron
It is a Petter PU8, a 8hp unit of 1936-1945 vintage.  Large numbers we supplied to the War Dept. during the war, for a variety of uses, typically used on air compressor trailers used by the Air Ministry. There was also a “Portable" 4 kW generator driven by one of these units. Google Petter PU8 there is plenty information available,  There was a post war version which slightly different I think this was called the PA2.
