I finally managed to get hold of one of these. Australian engines are few and far between here.

"The Taipan Tyro was a 1.9cc diesel produced for a number of years in the 1970's by Australian engine designer, Gordon Burford. Design wise, it is a conventional front-rotary valve, compression ignition engine with a bronze bushed crankshaft and steel liner with cast iron piston and contrapiston. It features two generous transfer ports, milled upwards into the cylinder to open just after the exhaust ports and fed by cast-in passages in the left and right sides of the crankcase. The exhaust ports are therefore positioned fore and aft--a rather unusual arrangement. Produced as an inexpensive, sport motor, it was easy to handle, yet quite powerful for its weight."

I know "Oldenginerod" - Rod has one.

It's a later version with black cylinder muff and comp screw spring. Very easy starting and runs beautifully.
