Flat 6 engine
An animation of a flat 6 boxer engine. Three piston pairs firing at every 120 degrees. Used most commonly in Porsche 911s.





V6 engine animation
An animations of a v6 engine, 120 degree spread. An even fire engine with two pistons per crank pin. This is not a common v6 configuration because it makes the engine too wide to fit into most vehicles.





Flat 12 engine
An animation of a flat 12 engine. 6 piston pairs firing at every 60 degrees. Notice that the layout is NOT a boxer, 2 pistons share a common crank pin.

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

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 ★ ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ▬▬





Straight 3 engine animation
An animation of a straight / inline 3 engine. There are no piston pairs, and this engine will run smoother than a straight 2 because the forces are more distributed.

Model Flat Four engine really runs!
This horizontally opposing flat four cylinder model was make from scratch - using solid billets of materials: aluminum, brass, etc. Cast iron piston rings take about 2 or 3 years to seat. He starts it with an electric drill.
