Too much engine room to keep clean. Thanks for posting.


I'm tired of fast moves, I've got a slow groove, on my mind.....

Ted even with your paint job it would take weeks to keep it clean and then start over, but I sure like the space. It's like having the engines pulled and it the shop. Enough room for even me.

what does positive ER air pressure do? Why isn't intake air through an external stack?

When I worked in a powerhouse in Alaska in a mine we started preheating both lube oil and coolant 24hrs aheat of startup. Dry sump. The oil was then pumped through the usual places as it it were running. Same w the coolant.

The actual cranking (via compressed air) began very slowly. One could not tell when the air was switched off and the engine was running on it's own. It just slowly increased in speed. At these ultra low speeds it was very quiet. At speed (327rpm) and load it was very noisy. Ear plugs required.

It was a 1440hp Enterprise 16X20" 8 cylinder in-line engine w a turbocharger. This was 1960. It was operated (governed) at 327rpm. Some of the older Alaska state ferries have the same engine.
