TORQUE = HP x 5252 ÷ RPM
Torque = (125 x 5252) / 250 = 2626 ft lbs or 3560Nm
That's an amazing amount of torque
Sadly the owner of this engine 'Vic' seen in the film passed away in
December 2012, I don't know which out of his collection was his favourite
but I bet he keeping any eye on them all.
He was a character and a gentleman I had the privilege to speak with many
I have had a message from the new owner which I have copied onto here and
.Hello racerroy, I originally bought and removed this engine from it's
working place (York waterworks in 1997) I then installed it in one of my
buildings and returned it to running order but after suffering a mental
brake down mistakenly sold it to Vick. I bought it from his daughter before
it was put to auction to stop it from being sold overseas!! The engine is
going into a privet collection in Suffolk just up the road from where she
was built, which I think is where she belongs. Steve
High-speed turbo balancing machine turbo Technics introduced the VSR Mk3
"Core" balancing machine in 1999, following 15 years production of the
previous Mk2 machine. Within months, its clever design and many unique
features became the talking point of the turbocharger industry. Following worldwide
acclaim, and the only VSR (Vibration Sorting Rig) to meet full factory
approval by GARRETT, KKK (3K Borg Warner) and IHI, the machine soon became
regarded as the accepted "Industry standard" for all turbocharger repair businesses and aftermarket
re-manufacturers. For full details of our current range of balancing
machines, please visit http://www.turbotechnics.com
