Rolls-Royce Merlin Engine
Considered a British icon, the Merlin was one of the most successful
aircraft engines of the World War II era, and many variants were built by
Rolls-Royce in Derby, Crewe and Glasgow,as well as by Ford of Britain at
their Trafford Park factory, near Manchester. The Packard V-1650 was a
version of the Merlin built in the United States. Production ceased in 1950
after a total of almost 150,000 engines had been delivered, the later
variants being used for airliners and military transport aircraft.
The PV-12 first ran in 1933 and, after several modifications, the first
production variants were built in 1936. The first operational aircraft to
enter service using the Merlin were the Fairey Battle, Hawker Hurricane and
Supermarine Spitfire. More Merlins were made for the four-engined Avro
Lancaster heavy bomber than for any other aircraft; however, the engine is
most closely associated with the Spitfire, starting with the Spitfire's
maiden flight in 1936. A series of rapidly applied developments, brought
about by wartime needs, markedly improved the engine's performance and
Many ascribe the victory during the Battle of Britain to the Merlin powered
Royal Air Force (RAF). And later its use in the American P-51 Mustang.

Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
The first V-type engine (a 2-cylinder vee twin) was built in 1889 by
Daimler, to a design by Wilhelm Maybach. By 1903 V8 engines were being
produced for motor boat racing by the Société Antoinette to designs by
Léon Levavasseur, building on experience gained with in-line four-cylinder
engines. In 1904, the Putney Motor Works completed a new V12 marine racing
engine -- the first V12 engine produced for any purpose. Known as the
'Craig-Dörwald' engine after Putney's founding partners, the engine
mounted pairs of L-head cylinders at a 90 degree included angle on an
aluminium crankcase, using the same cylinder pairs that powered the
company's standard 2-cylinder car. A single camshaft mounted in the central
vee operated the valves directly. As in many marine engines, the camshaft
could be slid longitudinally to engage a second set of cams, giving valve
timing that reversed the engine's rotation to achieve astern propulsion.
"Starting is by pumping a charge into each cylinder and switching on the
trembler coils. A sliding camshaft gave direct reversing. The camshaft has
fluted webs and main bearings in graduated thickness from the largest at
the flywheel end." Displacing 1,119.9 cuin (18,352 cc) (bore and stroke
of 4.875" x 5" (123.8 x 127 mm)), the engine weighed 950 pounds (430 kg)
and developed 150 bhp (110 kW). Little is known of the engine's
achievements in the 40-foot hull for which it was intended, while a scheme
to use the engine to power heavy freight vehicles never came to
fruition. One V12 Dörwald marine engine was found still running in a
Hong Kong junk in the late-1960s.
Two more V12s appeared in the 1909-10 motor boat racing season. The Lamb
Boat & Engine Company of Clinton, Iowa built a 1,558.6 cuin (25,541 cc
(5.25" x 6" (133.4 x 152.4 mm)) engine for the company's 32-foot Lamb IV.
It weighed in at 2,114 pounds (959 kg). No weight is known for the massive
3,463.6 cuin (56,758 cc) (7" x 7.5" (177.8 x 190.5 mm)) F-head engine built
by the Orleans Motor Company. Output is quoted as "nearly 400 bhp (300
By 1914, when Panhard built two 2,356.2 cuin (38,611 cc) (5" x 10" (127 x
254 mm)) engines with four-valve cylinder heads the V12 was well
established in motor boat racing.
In automobiles, V12 engines have not been common due to their complexity
and cost. They are used almost exclusively in expensive sports and luxury
cars because of their power, smoother operation and distinctive sound.

Engine Running NO OIL - NO SUMP - Seized Soild on Camera
Messing with a Mitsubishi Lancer
There are loads of videos where people run an engine at full rev with no
oil in it, and the engine seizes.
Running it a medium rev, I wanted to see how long it would run with no
lubrication, and I was surprised.
However if the car was driving and the engine was under load, it would be
dead in minutes!

Rebuilding the Ford 351 Windsor Part 1 - XW Falcon
The engine came in bits and is re-assembled to short motor stage. This was
originally to be used in a Mustang project, but was shelved in
favour of a Dart small block. So I grabbed it for the Falcon. We don't have
an engine reconditioning room, but all is going well.

Dissecting an Engine, The Basic Parts and Their Function - EricTheCarGuy
I've had more than one request for this and since I had a few hours while
sitting on my butt waiting for my Dodge engine to show up I thought I would
fill the time by making this video for you. I have to say that after the
first edit I wasn't too happy and went back and reshot not once but twice
and even then I still felt I didn't cover it the way I liked. I should
really start scripting these videos, it would make my life soo much easier.
Anyway don't be too rough on me if you have differing opinions as I'm
willing to accept them in the comments if you are nice about it but if your
going to tear me a new one then please make a video of your own explaining
why as at least then we will be on the same playing field.

Ford 351 Windsor Small Block Engine - Water in Oil Mystery
Behind the scenes of "Basic Engine Building" DVD
A special internet only treat from the producers of the BoxWrench Series!
Basic Engine Building DVD - Behind the Scenes: Small Block Ford 351 Windsor
We gonna show you some never before seen footage from the filthy Ford 351W
we pulled out of a boat. BoxWrench Director Brent Bye recaps the story of
discovering the engines problem and what ensued as the tear down process
Basically salt water was leaking into a cylinder head thru some hidden
steel water plugs that only these small block 351 W motors have. Being a
marine engine they needed to be replaced with rust proof brass plugs. After
running for 5 years the water eroded holes straight thru them. Water
pressurized from the water pump was squirting into the cylinder heads right
onto the rocker arms, valves and valve springs, ultimately all the way down
to the oil pan and crankcase. It all made out for a surprising tear down.
This particular Ford 351 Windsor marine motor was fully rebuild on camera
in the "Basic Engine Building" DVD. Even a catastrophic blown engine like
this can be rebuilt with the proper knowledge and tools. The BoxWrench
Series is designed to give you that knowledge and let you have fun with it.
