    I love the ladders in the crankcase next to the crank throws. Wonder how fast you could turn it on Nitrous?? Figure a tanker truck of nitrous would be good for a ten second pull

    They actually do turbo charge some of them. I did a search on ship building and found alot of info on some of that stuff. unfortunatly I didn't save any of the links . They shouldn't too hard to find.
    I do remember a picture of a turbo the size of an adult. I will see if I can find it.

    Saw some engines similar to those in Texas that were used to pump oil up the pipelines. Had like three foot bores and four to six foot strokes. There were inlines and vee's.

    They were supercharged by additional pistons that ran on the same throws as the pistons. Ran for years.

    You could feel the ground, concrete, shake and throb from them.

    Saw them pull a cylinder to replace a rod bearing. Looked like a normal babbit bearing only REAL BIG. They turned the crank throw too. Had a machine that was self propelled and ran around the journal. Took like all day to cut.

    Was very interesting. Back around 1967 or so. South Texas someplace. Near Beeville, Petus [spelling] maybe.
