3 TON FLYWHEEL! Vintage Steam Rally,Stourport 12th July 2009
Vic showing off his pride and joy....plus a 2 stroke TANK engine, he
informs me the BIG one developes 125hp @ 250rpm.. Filmed and edited by
TORQUE = HP x 5252 ÷ RPM
Torque = (125 x 5252) / 250 = 2626 ft lbs or 3560Nm
That's an amazing amount of torque
Sadly the owner of this engine 'Vic' seen in the film passed away in
December 2012, I don't know which out of his collection was his favourite
but I bet he keeping any eye on them all.
He was a character and a gentleman I had the privilege to speak with many
I have had a message from the new owner which I have copied onto here and
.Hello racerroy, I originally bought and removed this engine from it's
working place (York waterworks in 1997) I then installed it in one of my
buildings and returned it to running order but after suffering a mental
brake down mistakenly sold it to Vick. I bought it from his daughter before
it was put to auction to stop it from being sold overseas!! The engine is
going into a privet collection in Suffolk just up the road from where she
was built, which I think is where she belongs. Steve

Worn Dual Mass Flywheel - garageexeter.com
Jeff demonstrates what a worn dual mass flywheel looks like and shows the
difference to a new one. A lot of companies say the flywheels can be
