Interesting Engines


Recommended Posts

For engine buffs, here are a couple of interesting engines...Napier Deltic (developed from the Napier Culverin) and the Commer Double Knocker (TS2 and TS3).


Do a google search and view the 'wikipedia' animation of the Deltic. I


haven't heard the exhaust note of the delta engine, but the Commer TS2


trucks of the 1950's had a unique, very identifiable sound.


If you want to find some interesting engineering developments in engine design, start your search from about 1880!

One interesting development was done by Chrysler. Supercharged 2 stroke (petrol), injected with plain bearings, full pressure lubrication. But scrapped. Very sucessful prototype.


Maybe this will be ressurrected?
