Petter Diesels sold in the USA as "CROFTON"

Tucked away in the 1949 Diesel Engine Catalog, Volume 14 1949 is what looks like the Petters AV Series I diesel engine, in single and twin cylinder forms.

The text acknowledges the source of the engine, but does not specifically say they are a Petters AV model.

Designated the 5/1 and 10/2 (where have we heard that before??) 5hp and 10hp at 1500rpm.

I suspect that the Series I was fairly quickly replaced by the Series II.

Has anyone come across one that is this early?
