Used Small Diesel Engine

I'm looking for a used small diesel engine to run a generator. I want it to be my guinnie pig for my future homemade biodiesel. It don't have to be in running condition but would prefer a horizontal shaft. Any ideas on where I could start looking? Thanks.

I might have something. They are made in Italy, and are used to power the message boards you see on the highway. I'll get some pictures later today. I never ran one yet, but I was told with 20 gal. of fuel they will run for a week - 24 hours a day.

Think we have 4 left (?)

Here's some pic's. I'm not sure of the hp.......... from the tag it looks like they are 68cc......... pretty small. They do have an electric start though.

That looks like what I'm looking for. What do have to get for one of them.
