Motes & Williams Twin Engine Dragster 3
The Motes and Williams car was `70 & `71 NHRA World Champion in Top Gas. In
1970 it won the Springnationals and World Finals. In 1971 it won the
Springnationals and U.S. Nationals.I hope you enjoy my current Motes &
Williams footage. This was taken Oct 2001, Mike Newkirk at the wheel. RC
Williams and Greg Cook starting the car and me, I'm behind the camera. I
don't remember, but this was one of the first times the car ran since we
restored it. Wish I had my camera with me at John Laubhan's shop during the
Rat Rod Engine Dyno Testing - Zoomies!
Want a low buck Hot Rod engine that's not a total pooch and looks "Rat"
cool? David Freiburger from Hot Rod Magazine built this ultra cheap SBC
and runs it on the engine Dyno with multiple intake and Exhaust configurations. He even slaps a
set of Zoomies on it for extra cool factor. What do you think the horsepower numbers will
be? Watch the video to find out and get the June 2011 issue of Hot Rod
Magazine to read the feature story and get all the gory details.

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.

Apparently the builder's name is Yesus Wilder and he only used three
materials to build the engine. Stainless steel, aluminum, and bronze.
All credits to him.
