Above the Avro Shackleton

The successor of the great Merlin engine, the Rolls-Royce Griffon played its part in helping to win the Second World War when it was fitted to iconic warbirds such as the Spitfire and Seafire.

Griffon development began in response to a request from the Fleet Air Arm of the Royal Navy in 1938. Navy aircraft tend to be larger and heavier than their land-based counterparts; this obviously puts greater demands on the engine if performance is to be maintained.

To meet this demand, Rolls-Royce went back to the concept of the Schneider Air Racing Trophy “R” engine.

The Griffon, essentially a modernized Merlin, is a 60 degree V-12 with 2239 cu. in. displacement (the same parameters as the “R” and 36% greater displacement than the Merlin while having an only slightly larger frontal area.)

However, this was a totally new engine, featuring many design updates and improvements over the Merlin.

B24 Liberator Engine Mount (pg1 Pwr)

This is an engine mount from a B24 Liberator in good restored condition . This mount was purchased from an aircraft fitter who removed it from a Liberator based at Dunkeswell in Devon England. It is a superb piece in its own right but has the additional historical interest of having seen active service at Dunkeswell.

The US Army's 479th Antisubmarine Group was based at Station 173, Dunkeswell, Devon, which had been designated as FAW-7's new home in England.

The primary mission area for VB-103 and its sister squadrons in FAW-7, VB-105 and VB-110, was the Bay of Biscay. German U-Boat bases were located at Brest, Lorient, St. Nazaire, La Rochelle, and Bordeaux on the French coast, and from there the U-Boats fanned out north, west, and south in search of their prey.  To counter Allied ASW assets in the area, the Luftwaffe's V/KG40, equipped with the powerful Ju88C-6 heavy fighter, ranged across the Bay of Biscay from Bordeaux-Mérignac, and accounted for many Liberator disappearances. Several Ju88s were claimed by FAW-7 gunners in the bloody air battles between them and the Liberators.

 

Joseph Patrick Kennedy (pictured above) was the elder brother of President John F. Kennedy, and was born on the 28th July 1915.  He completed his flight training at Jacksonville U.S.A. in 1942.  As a volunteer U.S. Navy pilot he flew Mariner flying boats from Puerto Rico, Central America, before converting to the B24 Liberator and serving in England at Dunkeswell, Devon, with Squadron VB110.  After completing his normal combat tour of 30 missions, he volunteered for an extra 10 - somehow managing to talk his crew in to flying with him.  Just before his last mission Lt Kennedy volunteered for one further final mission which involved low level flying and a parachute jump.  This mission was to be Top Secret as part of project Anvil, the target being the German V3 Supergun site at Mimoyecques, France.  The details of this mission remained secret until 1966, although the identity of the crew was not released until 1970.

Bristol Sprockets (pg1 Pwr)

Here we have two original sprockets which carry the Bristol part number i.e. FB.

The two Bristol sprockets are probably from the engine power plant cowl gill ring system. A chain runs inside a square section ring to which the gill ring (cowl flaps for Americans). The chain operates sprockets with screw jacks attached  to open and close the cowl gill flaps. Bristol provided the complete engine and power plant hence the power plant components had “FB” prefix part numbers.

 

£75 for the pair

Bristol Engine Manifold (pg1 Pwr)

Here we have a carburettor manifold from a

Bristol Mercury or Pegasus.
It goes between the Hobson carb and supercharger

part number FB 60534 D9762

The Mercury's smaller size was aimed at fighter use, and it powered the Gloster Gauntlet and its successor, the Gloster Gladiator It was intended that the larger Pegasus would be for bombers, but as the power ratings of both engines rose the Mercury found itself being used in almost all roles. Perhaps its most famous use was in a twin-engine light bomber, the Bristol Blenheim.

RAF RCAF (MERLIN ENGINE) RADIATOR SHUTTER THERMO SWITCH (pg1 Pwr)

LANCASTER BOMBER MERLIN ENGINE RADIATOR SHUTTER THERMO SWITCH. THIS SWITCH WAS REMOVED FROM LANCASTER BOMBER FM 215 AS TIME EXPIRED OCT 26/1959.

Superb item with great provenance, connection to both Merlin and Lancaster. A very rare event is to have a picture of the actual aircraft a part has been removed from, the part was almost certainly in situ when this picture was taken of

Lancaster  FM 215.

History of Lancaster FM 215

TOS 21.8.45 in RCAF; was the 4th. Converted by Avro Canada to Mk.10P; issued to #408(P) Squadron with code 'MN215'; did extensive test on SHORAN; was used for short time at Winnipeg as a SAR aircraft with #111 Composite Unit about Aug. 1959; SOC 28.9.62

Oil Heater A/M 5A/2048

220 Volt oil heater. It has a nice A/M crown. I can only assume this is for preheating oil in big aero engines. Looks serviceable.

Here we have a complete Exhaust System for the Pratt and Whitley R-1830 "Double Wasp" Radial Engine

All these pieces have part numbers stamped on to them

These are Free from Major Rust Problems and are Completely original

The Pratt & Whitney R-1830 Twin Wasp was an American aircraft engine widely used in the 1930s and 1940s. Produced by Pratt & Whitney, it was a two-row, 14-cylinder, air-cooled radial design. It displaced 1,830 cu in (30.0 L) and its bore and stroke were both 5.5 in (140 mm). A total of 173,618 R-1830 engines was built, and from their use in two of the most-produced aircraft ever built, the B-24 bomber and DC-3 transport, more Twin Wasps may have been built than any other aviation piston engine in history.

R-1830 Twin Wasp at Duxford

This engine was used in a wide variety of ww2 aircraft such as

Consolidated B-24 Liberator

Douglas C-47 Dakota

Short Sunderland V

Vickers Wellington IV

 

This was also used in a lot of other RAF and USAAF Aircraft Throughout the War

This belongs in the instruments section as it is closely related to RPM indicator's listed in these pages.

RPM Counter drive(pg10 ins)

This is in superb boxed serviceable condition (subject to required check's and permits only opened for the picture and immediately resealed. These drives were connected to the Merlin by the normal direct drive cable that  powered the mechanical Rev counters .It generates an electric current and power's the electrical type RPM indicator. This  type of indicator was used where it was impractical to use direct drive cable's. They were used in all Mk's of Lancaster's and many other Bombers where the cockpit or engineers panel was far remote from the engine. It was actually used to power the RPM gauge in the rear cockpit of the very rare two seat Spitfire's. These do appear from time to time but never in this condition, this should end up on a flying aircraft.

Pictured under a Merlin 68

The Mk III Mustang was the original high back version less recognisable to most than the P51 Mk IV which had a bubble canopy seen under.

 

Merlin ID Plate (pg1 Pwr)

This is an interesting an unusual item. Its an id plate for a Merlin 68 series engine but its not from the engine itself but was attached to the crate the engine was supplied in. It has the specific ID for the engine nos 366799.

From the information I can find there seems to be some confusion as to whether the Merlin 68 is a Rolls Royce produced engine which was copied as the American built Packard Merlin V 1650 engine or actually a Packard made engine.

One thing is certain is that it was produced to power the P51 MK III Mustang B and C .

Three Cylinder Lawrence of New York Radial engine model (pg1 pwr)

This is a stunning vintage one off highly detailed hand made model in metal and wood of a three cylinder engine as used in the earliest aircraft . The model looks to be aged and is not a modern reproduction. The closest match I can find is an L3 designed and built by the Lawrence Aero Engine Corporation of New York.

 

Lawrance L-3 In 1914, engineer Charles L. Lawrance became interested in the development of air-cooled aircraft engines. After considerable research, the Lawrence Aero Engine Corporation of New York, New York, began to manufacture two-cylinder models on a small scale. These included the Models A-3 and N-2. The first of the three-cylinder designs was the Model B built originally in 1916. It was a three-cylinder radial engine with power ratings progressively improved from 35 to 60 hp. This led to a follow-on series of three-cylinder radials, the L-2, L-3, L-4, and L-5. Continuing the development of his air-cooled engine designs, Lawrance later developed his Model R and then the famous Model J series of engines. As a result of Wright Aeronautical acquisition by merger of the Lawrence Company in 1923, the J series were eventually designated Wright Whirlwinds.
The U.S. Army and Navy purchased a number of Lawrence L-2 engines, which developed 60 shp. The L-3 was an improved version of the L-2

Lawrance L-3 Radial Engine

Charles A. Lindbergh was planning his solo flight, New York to Paris. Lindbergh's story is aviation history. He got his airplane from Ryan in San Diego, fitted with a J-5C designed by Lawrance. He was first and alone. Lindbergh's flight was an international triumph for Wright Aeronautical. The Whirlwind engine never missed a beat.

Original Spitfire/Hurricane engine plate (pg1 pwr)

This is an original cockpit engine data plate typically fitted to large numbers of 2nd WW British aeroplanes, especially in the early war days.  They were usually riveted to the cockpit side, alongside the pilot.  Often found in Battle of Britain Hurricane and Spitfire wrecks, these are highly collectable as well as forming an essential addition to a restoration or display.

The first Griffons had single-stage superchargers, and were fitted to the Spitfire MK XII.

These aircraft arrived just in time to take on the Focke-Wulf 190 "Tip and Run" fighter bombers that were attacking England's South Coast. Their impressive low-level performance was used to good effect.

For high altitude a two-stage supercharger was needed and these arrived in the Spitfire XIV

and XVIII. This enabled the Spitfire to stay in the forefront of fighter performance until the end of the war

The De Havilland Hornet represents in many ways the peak of piston engine fighter design. With its slim fuselage, clean lines and tightly cowled engines, great attention was paid from the outset on maximising performance.


The prototype (RR915) was built on a private venture basis and flew for the first time on 28th July 1944.

Designed around the successful wooden construction principals of the De Havilland Mosquito, the Hornet was powered by a pair of 2,070 hp Merlin engines driving opposite-handed propellers and Boscombe Down trials revealed the astonishing maximum speed of 485 mph at 22,000 ft. The type also possessed superb handling characteristics, particularly in respect of its high rate of roll.

 

Initially conceived for operations in the Pacific Theatre against the Japanese, the conflict had ended before the aircraft reached operational status. Two main marks saw service with the RAF Fighter Command: The F Mk 1 and the F Mk 3 with the latter having increased fuel capacity and a large dorsal fin. Armament was four 20mm cannon and wing hard points eight ground attack rockets or a pair of 1,000 lb bombs. Alternatively, two 200 gallon drop tanks could be carried.

 

It saw active service in the Far East as a Strike Fighter during the Malayan Emergency in 1951, replacing Bristol Beaufighters and Supermarine Spitfires.

 

Merlin 131De Havilland Hornet engine plate (pg1 pwr)

This is a brass identification plate plate as fitted to the Merlin Mk 131 it is original and never fitted new old stock.

The Merlin 131 was a redesigned "slimline" versions for the De Haviland Hornet. The engine was modified to decrease frontal area to a minimum and was the first Merlin series to use down-draught induction systems. The two-speed, two-stage supercharger and S.U. injection carburettor giving a maximum boost of +25 psi . On the Hornet the Merlin 130 was fitted in the starboard nacelle the Merlin 131 fitted in the port nacelle, and was converted to a left-hand tractor engine using an additional idler gear in the reduction gear casing.

Warner Scarab engine reproduction (pg1 pwr)

Here we have a replica of a  Warner Scarab engine.

 The Warner Scarab is an American seven-cylinder radial aircraft engine, that was manufactured by the Warner aircraft corporation in 1928 through to the early 1940s. In military service the engine was designated R-420.

The engine is made of fibreglass with a plywood back and would make a great display piece hung on a  wall due to its light weight especially as a backdrop to a wooden prop which could easily be mounted on the front of the engine..

Amongst the many uses for the Scarab, the engine was fitted to the Cessna Air master and the Fairchild 24 (UC61 or Argus). Notably, in 1942, it was put into use powering the Sikorsky R4, the first helicopter to be put into production.

Many of these reliable engines soldier on today, still powering the aircraft to which they were originally mounted. The Warner 145 and 165 HP engines are the most commonly seen of the small radials for US-built pre-WWII era aircraft, in large part because of good parts availability due to the engines having been used on WWII Fairchild UC61s and Meyers OT Ws.

A glycol tank for a Bristol Beaufort in good original condition.

The Bristol Beaufort was one of a series of aircraft derived from the earlier Bristol Blenhiem.  It was designed in response to two Air Ministry specifications issued in 1935. M.15/35 called for a torpedo-bomber and G.24/35 for a general reconnaissance and bomber aircraft. The aircraft that became the Beaufort was the third Bristol aircraft submitted to these specifications. The first aircraft to be submitted to specification G.24/35 was the Bristol Type 149, which went on to be produced in Canada as the Bolingbroke and in Britain as the Blenheim Mk IV, for use as a light bomber.
