A running engine display project maybe?

Hi Pat

Wow, a grand to kick it off.
Put some oil in it, crank the starter and do a compression test?. You just never know your luck.

Hi Nick
Good to hear from you.

I asked the question if it is running, but have not had a reply.

This could be the first step in getting to a Merlin on a trailer to take to the engine shows

Hi Pat, likewise mate.

I noticed the dizzy is missing and the "antlers" are mounted backwards!, lol!. Still, if it turns over with good compression and the block/weep holes look ok- it just might be worth salvaging as a running engine?, especially after all these wet liner horror stories.
Maybe check it out?.

We all love those Youtube vids of Merlins, Griffons and British warbids- those sounds are awesome through good speakers. Lets just say that if I was Hermann Goering- I'd be worried!.

A big ditto.
The huge radial engines with props sound awesome.
But I think this is the ultimate back yard Rolls Royce mate.
