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.

131948 / 1968 Dodge Charger Pro-Touring

You already know that RK Motors Charlotte has a thing for Chargers. You've
already seen some of the world's most mind-blowing, potent, flat-out nasty
pro-touring Chargers come out of our shop. They've been in magazines and
won prizes at all the top shows. And as amazing as they all were, this
show-stopping 1968 Dodge Charger pro-touring custom just upped the ante
significantly! Combining the best of yesterday, with the best of today and
tomorrow, this Charger was built for the muscle car fan that wants the
absolute best and doesn't want to share!
What if you could have the great looks of a Charger in a Challenger-sized
package? We've taken it to the next level not by going wild, but by
imagining how the car would look if the factory had built it. You'll have
to look twice to see the changes (and they are indeed radical), and to find
where the OEM and the modified merge the essence of great customs. Ask any
custom builder and he'll tell you that no car is ever finished, and where
one owner's ideas stop, a new ones begin, letting the car evolve.
Based on the overwhelmingly positive response we got to Maximum Effect, our
all-black '70 Charger pro-touring car, we dipped this one in the same vat
of sinister Midnight Black Metallic to give it a stealthier appearance and
let the radical custom sheet metal do the talking instead of the loud
paint. Where the original design was wild for the sake of being wild, this
one is focused like a laser now the car looks downright brutal, like it'll
bite your hand off if you get too close.
Let's start with the custom design elements present in this stunning
Sleek, free-flowing bodylines.
The front half was shortened 10.5 inches, and the rear 10 inches
Roof was chopped 2 inches, moved ahead 4 inches, and the A-Pillar raked
back, creating a one-of-a-kind look
Each panel on the car has been hand-fabricated
Trunk is 5000 series aluminum, filled with expandable sound deadening foam
to keep things quiet inside
Quarter panels have been shortened and restyled to flow with the doors.
Doors have been restyled with new body lines and a shaved appearance
Fenders have been shortened, restyled and restructured
Hood is custom-made, with a steel frame, wrapped in aluminum and filled
with expanding sound deadening foam
The rear of the car is fitted and shortened
The custom trunk floor and frame rail have been restructured. Torque boxes
have been added for strength and rigidity and the floor and tunnel have
been reconfigured, strengthened and redesigned to fit the new drive-train
Midnight Black Metallic is a custom-mixed paint that was applied by the
experts at our own RK Motors restoration shop (you know, the guys who have
won top honors at virtually every show we've entered)
Custom aluminum CNC-milled gas cap
Custom aluminum fuel cell
Other OEM design elements have been retained, however. From the front
grille to the chrome rear bumper, that's original stuff, again to emphasize
the tremendous amount of metalwork that went into reshaping the body. An
original Charger grille and hidden headlights have been fitted between the
custom-made fenders and hood, exactly the way the factory would have done
it. Out back, the unique 1968 Charger round taillights have been retained
and fit right in, again forcing you to stand back and think hard about
what, exactly, has been modified (look at the car in profile and you'll
definitely see the changes).

Our Chrysler engines have both the small block (318 & 360) and big block
(383, 400 & 440) drop in ready crate engine packages available. The
Chrysler engine was built with non-adjustable valve trains therefore
special attention must be considered when choosing your pistons and
camshafts. We build these particular engines with adjustable rocker arms to
accommodate high compression large lift and longer duration cam shafts.
There are a vast array of performance parts available to turn your Chrysler
from a mild 275 horse power grocery getter to a wild tire smoking stroker
with high horse power.
