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.

R3350 Duplex Cyclone ignition Harness (pg1 Pwr)

This is an ignition harness from an R3350 Aero engine and appears to be old new stock although I offer no guarantee that it works..

The Wright R-3350 was a twin-row, 18-cylinder radial engine that was developed from the Wright R-1820 Cyclone and was one of the most powerful radial engines produced in the United States. Work on the engine began in January 1936 and the first R-3350 was run in May 1937.

Development proceeded slowly due to the complex nature of the engine and concentrated effort on the Wright R-2600.

 It was similar in design to the company's R-2600 14-cylinder radial, sharing the same bore and stroke, but adding four more cylinders for additional displacement.

Development accelerated after the USAAC issued its requirement for a long-range heavy bomber in 1940 resulting in the Boeing B-29 Superfortress.

 A serious effort was made then made to get the engine into production and the R-3350 finally made its first flight in 1941.

Shown above the B29 Superfortress

The B-29 Superfortress revolutionized World War II-era bombers, enabling long-range missions over Japan. The "super bomber" could carry more payload and fly faster than the Army's B-17 or B-24 heavy bombers. The B-29 was also equipped with a pressurized interior, allowing crewmen to fly long distances in relative comfort. Two modified B-29s dropped atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, helping end the war in the Pacific. Another carried Chuck Yeager and the Bell X-1 rocket plane aloft for the first supersonic flight in 1947.

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.

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.

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

yce amp; 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

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

Seen under an original

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.

French Potez 54 aircraft data plate  (pg1 pwr)

This is probably unique extremely rare plate taken from a French Potez aircraft shot down during the Spanish civil war
 

This two-engine aircraft was built by the French Potez company to fulfil a 1932 specification for a new reconnaissance bomber. Built as a private venture, this aircraft, designated the Potez 54, flew for the first time on 14 November 1933. Designed by Louis Coroller, it was intended as a four-seat aircraft capable of performing duties such as bomber, transport and long-range reconnaissance.

Their first combat was in the Spanish Civil War, where they were employed by the Spanish loyalist side. A poor design that was already obsolete just two years after its introduction, when confronted by the higher performance German and Italian planes of the same period, the Potez 540 proved itself a failure in Spanish skies during the Civil War and was labelled as 'Flying Coffin by Spanish Republican pilots In the late 1930s, these aircraft were becoming obsolete so they were withdrawn from reconnaissance and bombing duties and were relegated to French transport units. They were also employed as paratrooper training and transport aircraft. By September 1939 and the beginning of World War II, they had been largely transferred to the French colonies in North Africa, where they continued to function in transport and paratrooper service. Their role in even these secondary assignments was problematic given their poor defensive armament and vulnerability to modern enemy fighters. Following the French capitulation to Germany in June 1940, those Potez 540s still flying served the Vichy French air force mainly in the French overseas colonies. Most of these machines were retired or destroyed by late 1943.

Glycol tank for a Bristol Beaufort (pg1 pwr)

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.

The de Havilland DH.98 Mosquito was a British multi-role combat aircraft with a two-man crew that served during and after the Second World War. It was one of few operational front-line aircraft of the era constructed almost entirely of wood and was nicknamed "The Wooden Wonder".The Mosquito was also known affectionately as the "Mossie" to its crews. Originally conceived as an unarmed fast bomber, the Mosquito was adapted to roles including low to medium-altitude daytime tactical bomber, high-altitude night bomber, pathfinder, day or night fighter, fighter-bomber, intruder, maritime strike aircraft, and fast photo-reconnaissance aircraft. It was also used by the British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) as a fast transport to carry small high-value cargoes to, and from, neutral countries, through enemy-controlled airspace. A single passenger could be carried in the aircraft's bomb bay, which was adapted for the purpose

The drive for improved high altitude performance gave rise to the Merlin X, the first mark to incorporate a two-speed supercharger in place of the previous single speed unit. The similar Merlin XX gained significant performance benefits from Stanley Hooker's work on improving the aerodynamic efficiency of the supercharger. The XX series and its developments primarily saw service on the Hurricane II and Mosquito in Fighter Command, as well as being widely used on a number of Bomber Command aircraft, notably the Mosquito, Lancaster, and Merlin Halifax.

In a reciprocating piston engine, the connecting rod or conrod connects the piston to the crank or crankshaft. Together with the crank, they form a simple mechanism that converts reciprocating motion into rotating motion.

As a conrod is rigid, it may transmit either a push or a pull and so the rod may rotate the crank through both halves of a revolution, i.e. piston pushing and piston pulling.

Rolls Royce Kestrel Supercharger (No 2 pg 1 PWR)

 

The Kestrel was a 700 hp (520 kW) V-12 aircraft engine from Rolls Royce, their first cast-block engine and the pattern for most of their future piston-engine designs most famously the Merlin. One key advance in the Kestrel was the use of a pressurized cooling system.

The engine was first produced in 1927 at 450 hp (340 kW), which soon improved in the IB model to 525 hp (390 kW). This model saw widespread use in the famed Hawker Hart family that dominated British air power during the early 1930s.

 However it was not long before line improvements increased power dramatically; the V model provided 695 hp (520 kW) at 3,000 rpm with no basic change to the design, while the XVI used in the Miles Master delivered 745 hp (560 kW). Messerschmitt also tested its first BF 109 prototypes with Kestrel engines in 1935.

Increased availability of higher octane aviation fuel in the late 1930s allowed the engine to be boosted to higher power levels without suffering from ping, and the Kestrel eventually topped out at 1,050 hp in the XXX model of 1940.

 

This is a super rare probably unique supercharger from an early Rolls Royce Kestrel. This supercharger was saved from an engine that was broken for scrap in the 1970s and so is straight and has not been crashed. The vanes in the supercharger turn freely and it should be serviceable subject to the required checks.
