The diesels on the big ship were Nordberg 9 cylinder engines. 3,100 Hp at 180, I think. At the ski area we had a pair of 1,600 hp Fairbanks FD38's. 10 cylinders, 20 pistons, twin opposed cranks. They had 1,200kw generators on them. They came out of a sub, I was told.
Wood-Mizer LT40HDD51-WR Wireless, Kubota L48, Honda Rincon 650, TJ208 G-S, and a 60"LogRite!

FB / Morse engines are so cool once you wrap your head around how they work, one crank over the other with lead on 1 crank, just neat.  :D

Rebuilt quite a few 8/71's & 12/71's in the early 70's 8/71's were rated @ 290 hp 950 lbs.torque with N65 injectors,truck application.Had a local Brockway dealer equip his gravel hauling truck customers 8/71's,9513Road Ranger Trans,44K rears with 4:62 ratio rears.Trucks used to run about 64mph @ 2300.If you were young and a drag racer like many of us you were right at home pulling gravel with that set up,get down to 1800 just split it and bring it up to 2300 and grab another gear.They pulled very good considering they would pulling close to 100k gross.
