Eddie, I second you on that one! One of the most incredible things ever engineered. Too bad it all went to waste, but turbocompounding in diesels is making a comeback.

I have mine. It is a 16 horse Petter Fielding. Single cylinder and will tick along at about 100 rpm all day as smooth as you please. It is the only one I have ever seen or heard of. If anyone has any info on one of these I wuld love to hear from you.

Aloha Gents,

My vote is for the Fairbanks Morse YH, 1912 design, into production in 1913 in production through to 1935 or so. By the test of time, a functional design that apparently was also well enough built and supported to provide a lot of SERVICE. These devices were made to provide the SERVICE of power production when desired. I suggest that the YH was in the forefront of doing what it was supposed to for a long time.

Then again, I have a 10 HP YH, that may color my vision some.

But, I also note that it is likely the most mentioned model in this thread.

Mahalo,
Chuck

The Maris Pearl's Enterprise Diesel is one of those I could lay a cot out next to and sleep all night long. Skip to 1:00 to see what I mean.

I wouldn't refuse Tuckahoe's 160HP DeLaVergne either.

But this 1905 MAN would be my ultimate dream. Too cool.

Wow!! 100rpm! I bet that is interesting to watch running. I've managed to get my Arona down to 600rpm and I thought that was slow. Is the 16hp rating at 100rpm?

BTW, from what I've read (never seen one), I'd like to have a Lister single CS, probably a 6/1.

I would have to say for me its the 1947 Caterpillar D318 Marine thats in my boat. It has a pony engine and an electric starter, a built in priming pump and sump pump. The raw water pump is solid bronze with a huge bronze impeller. The engine and gear weigh 3800 lbs. and delivers 75 hp @ 1200 rpms.

Sulzer, by far my favourite engine, I was 2nd Engineer for 18 months, what an engine, everything hand lapped, very few gaskets. Hard work to be sure but a first class engine. 1.55 metre stroke, 760 millimetre stroke, 9650 BHP @ 118 RPM burning IFO 180 none of that sissy diesel fuel stuff.

Cheers Al

An early St. Mary's or HVid would be nice. I am about to pickup my FBMY and am very excited about that. I also have a Gideon Upright diesel that I need to pay attention to. Hell, any hot tube diesel really!!

2 strokes instead of one, 760 should be the bore.

A D13000 Cat, preferably in a D8, late 2U series - 1952 or 53. Or a Murphy, as used in a Northwest Model 6 or bigger.
