MARS 5HP DIESEL ENGINE - 1st Start Up in 50 Years!
Watch as an early 1940's MARS Diesel engine is fired up after 50 years.
Originally acquired from a cane farmer in Nambour, Queensland, Australia in
the 1970's, this engine sat in careful custody with another three owners
before finally retiring with me.
MARS engines were made by the MARS Machine Tool Manufacturing Company in
Brisbane, Australia and were preceded by the horizontal and vertical Rapson
and Dutton engine, made by the same company under the Rapson and Dutton
MARS engines are not Lister clones. Mars engines are bigger, heavier and
more robust than Lister engines. When you listen to a Lister and then to a
MARS you will agree. This engine has a 3 " diameter crankshaft and not one
component is interchangeable with a Lister.
MARS engines were commonly used in industrial situations such as factories
to power line shafts which powered a number of machines, a task Lister
engines had some trouble with apparently with their crankshafts twisting
under the load on start up, and why this company made the Mars Diesel.
5 HP MARS engines were painted Maroon colour as standard from the factory
although there are variations of colour in existence. 8 HP engines were a
This engine has not run since the original owner sold it in the early
1970's. Apparently it had not run for some years before that. The second
owner sadly passed away before restoring it and it sat in a shed untouched
with the third owner.
Close friend and temporary fourth owner, Simon Devere, assisted actively in
the mechanical restoration when I purchased it and assisted in the first
start after its mechanical restoration. This man is a genius when it comes
to diesel engines and he has the nickname "The Lister Whisperer" for good
reason. Thanks "Slippery".
This engine appears to have not done much work judging by its internals.
Work to the engine includes new rings, liner/cylinder hone (the original
factory liner had indiscernible wear in it), new valve guides made to
original specs, new valves to original specs (original was bent and caused
damage to the guide) , new big end Babbit bearing, new conrod bush, very
light head machine to ensure true flatness, new internal oil pipes, new
head gasket, new oil gaskets, new high pressure line, new welch plugs in
the head and new oil pickup.
There are still remnants of the original factory maroon paint on it that
have survived the years of weathering out in the cane fields.
Cosmetic restoration is planned shortly to bring it back to its original
livery. It will be mated with a steel transporter to emphasise its
industrial heritage and will be rallied with pride.
Video of the finished engine on transporter will be posted when it is done.
Enjoy and please share if you like.
This is the only video of a Mars engine running to this date anywhere. Hope
to see more.
Diferenças entre motores Diesel e Gasolina
Num motor a diesel, o ar e o diesel entram na câmara de combustão, em
separado. Primeiro entra o ar, que é comprimido a uma grande taxa de
compressão (normalmente o motor a diesel tem uma taxa de compressão
superior ao motor a gasolina, uma das razões para que tem mais
cilindrada). O ar altamente comprimido aquece e, neste ponto de alta
compressão, o diesel é injetado diretamente para a câmara a alta
pressão. Ao entrar em contato com o ar quente, explode.
Um motor a diesel é menos rotativo que um a gasolina e desenvolve mais
binário a rotações mais baixas que um a gasolina (o binário é a força
aplicada a um metro de distância do eixo de rotação).
O motor a gasolina consegue manter a força por mais tempo, porque o motor
a diesel "esgota" mais rapidamente. Isto quer dizer que um motor a gasolina
vai sem problemas até as 6000 rotações, mas que um motor a diesel não
passa das 5000.
Dito isto, as principais vantagens do motor a diesel é o baixo consumo de
combustível, maior binário a baixas rotações (na prática, tem mais
força) e maior durabilidade. É também o tipo de motor mais indicado para
automóveis de mercadorias e camiões porque desenvolve mais força (mais
O motor a gasolina é um motor rotativo que, quando comparado com o seu
equivalente a diesel, consegue melhor performance.
Awesome V12 Monster diesel engine Awake and Alive startup
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.

Cross Country in a Gasser 1955 Chevy with a Hemi! - Roadkill Ep. 30
On this episode of Roadkill, it's 2,600 miles, 530 cubic inches, 700 horsepower, six
speeds, 17 mpg, and two fun visits with some friends from TV. Last time, on
Roadkill Episode 29, we finished our Chrysler-Hemi-powered 1955 Chevrolet
gasser in about two weeks of thrashing (it's the same car you saw us take,
as a bare shell, to Jim Meyer Racing in Oregon in Episode 8). On this
latest episode, we drive it around the block once, then hit the road on a
2,600-mile journey from Los Angeles to the kickoff party of the 2014 HOT
ROD Power Tour in Concord, North Carolina. On the way, there's the
breakdowns you expect from Roadkill, plus two surprises: a stop at Midwest
Street Cars with Justin "Big Chief" Shearer and Shawn "Murder Nova"
Ellington from Street Outlaws, and another with Rutledge Wood from Top Gear
The '55 Chevy is based on an original body with new quarters and floors and
a fiberglass decklid and tilt front end, and Lexan windows from ProGlass.
It's not in primer: the car was wrapped in satin black by Moody from
High-Tech Auto Wraps. The car sits on a complete gasser chassis from Jim
Meyer Racing with a solid front axle on leaf springs and a ladder-bar setup
with Vicking coilovers on the rear. The rear tires are reproduction
Firestone piecrust slicks from Coker tire, and the fronts are just like
stock VW Bug tires.
The engine is a 530ci Hemi based on a Mopar Performance crate engine. With
a Comp solid roller cam, 10.5:1 compression, homemade 2-1/4-inch headers
from a Hedman kit, and Hilborn stack injection powered by a FAST XFI
controller and Aeromotive fuel system, it makes 700 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of
torque. We were stunned to see 17 mpg a few times on the cross-country
trip, especially with absurd 5.43 gears in the Ford 9-inch rear axle. The
key to it all is the Tremec T56 Magnum six-speed manual double-overdrive
trans installed with a conversion kit from American Powertrain. The car
uses a Speedwires harness, charging and starting by Powermaster, and a
Braille lightweight battery in the trunk.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
