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 durability. 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.

Best Paint Touch-up Tricks: Mercedes G55
This is one of the worst key scratches I have ever seen. This car needed to be repainted, but I thought I would give it a shot...nothing to lose. It covered 3 separate door panels with varying depth levels. 98% of the 9 feet was through the clear coat, paint, base, and into the substrate. EXTREMELY bad scratch. In this episode, I discuss multiple ways to approach this type of paint damage. I want to be crystal clear: THIS CAR NEEDED TO BE REPAINTED FOR 90-100% satisfaction. My techniques here, with the understanding of the customer, had the best-case final results of 70% to 75% "better or touched-up" appearance. See how it turned out. Thx for watching! -L





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 company name. 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 different colour. 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. Cheers Phil





Spitfire OUV. A Truly Emotional Start-Up. www.ml407.co.uk
See: http://www.ml407.co.uk Nick Grace bought the 2 seat Spitfire in 1979 in a dismantled state and after 5 years of work took off with his wife Carolyn on their first flight. Apart from the substantial task of general re-assembly the fuselage and wings were essentially as they left the factory but a large amount of the work involved stripping back to bare metal and re-riveting after treatment with modern anticorrosives which is why OUV is still operational today with no corrosion. Tragically Nick was killed in a car accident in 1988 but his widow continues to fly OUV. This short clip is taken from the film "Perfect Lady" which covers the full story of OUV's restoration. It and other videos are available from Carolyn's website with all profits going to maintain the Spitfire in flying condition.

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.[2] 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."[3] 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.[2] 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 kW)". 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.[2] 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. ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ▬▬ ★ MORE INTERESTING VIDEOS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrbwGmtZ8pM&list=UUYH8swcp71EHt-88lkaMDTQ ★ SUBSCRIBE: http://goo.gl/GynuUU ★ Follow my Twitter: https://twitter.com/GeorgeDominik1 ★ Thanks For Watching ★ ★ Post comment , share and tell us what u think ★ ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ▬▬





Men Bet Their Lives on It -- Packard Merlin Engines
Rolls-Royce developed the legendary Merlin engine that held land, aviation and water speed records. It was unmatched but the Rolls factories were threatened during WWII and the company needed a partner in a safe country that could produce the engines as well. They also had to be able to produce them up to Rolls-Royce standards. Packard was the one. Packard built Merlin engines for the Lancaster bombers, P-51 Mutangs and other airplanes during WWII in its Detroit Factory with American workers who served on the home front by transforming the auto factories into the Arsenal of Democracy. Many credit the industrial might of this country with winning the War. These engines won the Battle of Britain and took the fight far into Germany. Other Packard engines were enlisted to power PT Boats. For More information: http://www.pt-boat.com/ And: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Packard_V-1650





Super car driver idiots [NO pics, only videos]
I got bored with all the "super car crashes"-videos here on YouTube that only contained PICTURES, CRAPPY MUSIC or/and clips of pure racing cars on official racing events. This compilation DOES NOT include pure racing cars on official racing events - only real life FAILures on the STREETS, made by people with more money than driving skills... (Though, even the best car drivers can crash too of course.) Notice 1: The "Dodge Ram" may not be a super car, but still it's a SRT10 with the 8.3L Viper V10 which produces 510hp. Pretty super for a pick up, don't you think? It has more power than several of the cars in this video. The intention with this video was to show that skills doesn't come with money. Notice 2: Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is preferred in most varieties of English outside North America. And I'm from Sweden. So please think outside your box (country), you who claims "tyre" is incorrect spelling.
