The Owat 5 cc fixed-compression diesel was one of the very first model diesels to be introduced to the British market. It was manufactured in Bradford, England from mid 1946 until late 1947. It was pretty much an unashamed copy of the Micron 5 cc model from Paris, France. The Owat was manufactured in two distinct series, although the differences between the two variants are very minor. The engine runs very well indeed by the standards of its day. Full details of the Owat story may be found in my separate article on this web-site.
