WILLANS ENGINE

With the rally behind them members have resumed work on erecting the Willan's air blast diesel engine. This spectacular 3 cylinder engine was built to Rudolph Diesel's patented design for the first successful diesel engine. A year ago the club completed the time consuming and very expensive exercise of building the enormous foundation necesary to support the engine. The current task is to align and level the engine and components which have all been refurbished. Jacking screws are in place to level the bed plate, the flywheel bearing is being lined up.
