The Willans is 250bhp @220rpm. It is direct coupled to an AC alternator which is beyond repair.
When the engine arrived MSTEC was fortunate to have Frank Gough a very experienced diesel engineer as head of the section. Frank dedicated many months to fully restoring all the engine components. He sadly passed away before seeing the project completed.

Everything to a high standard
A Reavell quadruplex three stage compressor connected to the end of the crankshaft supplies the 900 psi air needed to atomise and inject the fuel.
One of the crankshaft bearings needed grinding and when no gear was available large enough to accomodate the crankshaft it had to be shipped to Goltens in Singapore.
