36 Bristol Centaurus

I have a workshop manual for this engine, my dad used to work on them

To many when you've got to take em out, clean em, test em them put em back in.

Twice as many as the amount of cyclenders it has

36, plus spares for the fouled ones at the bottom

Two per cylinder head.

Assuming twelve cylinders ...twenty four.

36

Clever hubby! X

Clever way of arranging shiny factory buildings to look like sparks!

Great picture thanks for sharing

I enjoyed that flight, thanks Richard Grace and Andy Durston.

2 seater

Stunning!

Great pic Steve!!

WOW.!!

The very first Bf109 took to the air with a Rolls Royce Kestrel engine; it seems somehow fitting that the last were powered by the Kestrel’s successor, the Merlin.

great shot

Shame, but the modification to the engine cowling to accomodate the Merlin engine, spoils the whole look of the thing. Okay, no one ever said that the 109 was as pretty as the Spitfire, but with the Daimlar Benz 601, it had smoother lines and generally had the 'up to it's job' look.
