    Default M-3, M3A1 With Guiberson Diesel

    Working on a story on the Guiberson diesel engine for Diesel World magazine and while it's not primarily about the M-3 application of that engine, I wanted to include an image of the tank. I am looking for an image of a Guiberson-powered M-3 or M-3A1, either a period image or a current one. Might be grasping at straws here, but I do recall that five or so were recovered from Brazil by a British dealer a few years back but I can't find any info on their current whereabouts or condition. Any clues welcome. Images need to be larger than this normally posted on the web due to this being in a print publication.

    There is an ex-Brazilian Diesel powered example at Bovington.

    Are they Cartridge starting? That was Bovingtons excuse at the time for not running theirs.

    Yes, but Queensland tank has 24V inertia starter fitted for ease of starting !
