1909 10HP Blackstone oil engine vs Bentley W12

Postby Don't Blink » 21 Oct 16, 9:25 pm

1909 10HP Blackstone oil engine was used for pumping water from a river to a market garden. A number of river floodings submerged the engine and it was eventually partially buried in silt. It was recovered in the 1990s and in 1997 it was dismantled, cleaned and started again after many years of neglect. The starting procedure requires heating of the hot bulb with a blow lamp in order to vaporise the fuel ( kerosene ) and to preheat the internal combustion chamber to allow fuel ignition.




Bentley Factory - W12 ENGINE - Bentley's Pyms Lane factory has a rich history of engine production, producing around 26 thousand Merlin Engines between 1938 and 1945. How it's made Bentley factory. The legacy is continued today as Bentley's position as the world's largest producer of the W12 engine is reinforced by its establishment as the centre of excellence for the Volkswagen Group for all W12 engine production from the end of 2014. The heart of each Bentley is the engine, and each one is handcrafted. Every single component of the 6¾-litre twin-turbo V8 and 6-litre W12 is selected and installed by hand by a small team of dedicated engine technicians.
