Geez, Cabesa, that one looks like she tokk one in the left butt cheek.

I used to think that, before I saw to many of the damn things.
I love steam turbines and gen sets - they are machines with souls. like an old BMW, Duc or Goose.
I pretty much stay away from the CT stuff (combustion turbine - like a jet engine tuned for torque not thrust) as I find them as souless as a Japanesse inline 4
I just picked this up over the weekend. I will be stripping it down and fully cleaning the aluminum block to look new. Then will be making a glass top coffee table out of it for my theater room.
It is a BMW V-12 block out of a 750il. I own one and talk about a fantastic motor. The faster you go, the harder it pulls.
I'll post more when it is clean.
Do those pipes meet EPA's <!--StartFragment -->Noise Control Act of 1972 (P.L. 92-574) ??
Heck that paint color doesn't meet the EPA's Noise Control ACT.......
Well I am no picture posting expert but, I have a couple of suggestions for engine art.
Offenhauser midget or indy car engine, way cool and they sound awesome.
I have seen a few at vintage sprint car and midget meets.
very cool to hear some of the old timers take them out for a spin around the track and get them dirty.
My dad always talks about how great the old Novi indy car engine was.
I did find a website that has some cool car pictures,some engine pictures and some very cool sound files of running engines.
Here you go
Some cool stuff on that site
Good find, KTM
HOLY Shnitz :huh
Miller 122 front drive sound
(from the same site)
I met a guy a few years ago whos father had built one from scratch, in 1/4 scale...that ran!!! That gear train was amazing. The guys dad was a self taught hobby machinest working in his basement
(these are from the 2000 San Mateo International Motorcycle Expo.
I don't have the patience, but I really appreciate the guys that do ... 1/4 scale and ran! ... that is kool.
my buddy, a self taught machinist made this in his garage...
its 1:8 scale (1 foot == 1.5"). works quite well, he's steamed it many 100s of hours around places like GGLS in Tilden Park, as well as various private scale layouts all over the state. can pull 4-5 people on little cars behind it.
he just started work on a much bigger 2-8-2 mikado... first he had to get a bridgeport mill :)
