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.

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!
