We have at our airclub a Hercules 3 winch equipped with a Tatra v8 108-4 Diesel engine.

Unfortunately it is either not powerful enough to tow some of the heavy gliders or it does not perform to the peak of it design. So does anyone know how to increase the power output of such an engine or can you point to an suitable replacement engine with more power that would fit in the same space ?

Also if anyone has a repair manual or schematics of the engine would be welcome.
