on the 12 and 16 cylinder engines i work on you need plugs and muffs and they say anything more than 20 minutes in a 24 hr. period will do permanent damage :dontknow: that's at full throttle though and they are nowhere near as big as these ones

I used to work at a foundry where we specialised in making the pistons for these type of motors. The ones we made were not quite as large as this one ours were up to 3' in diameter and 3'6" in height it would take 4 guys to pour it and had a cooling time of up to 1 hour!!! In a 12 hour shift we would only make around 10 pistons.

I dont think 20 would fill the injector

that works out to 30,279.76 pounds of fuel per hour. I bet they feel it when oil prices jump even a penny.

IT runs of bunker oil. Sulzer makes them in switzlerland. a machinist at my work was making them 30 years ago. They make them in switzlerland run them in for a week, then they compleatly disasenble them for shipping.
