There is always interesting with free standing engines. The first one here is a Lincoln V12 sidevalve 60°. The crankshaft on page 2 is not for this engine, instead it might be a Jaguar V12 one. The Lincoln has only three main bearings and for this case was a weak engine. I didn't see any information about this. The big tank engine in page 6 is one of the engines that Swedish defense sold out during the big defense reduction. The were sold out very cheap for 20000 Skr. I had not the money this time either. The engine was a main one for almost all military vehicles like grounded or airplanes. From the beginning it was named Merlin which Packard got license to change production high production friendly. For airplane use it got a compressor, it became bigger every year. This engine type was from the beginning aimed for centurion tanks, which Sweden bought many of. Heinkel bought one copy of the Merlin engine for his Blitz airplane. See centurion engine. Other engines site, Hannover air museum.

I saw such an engine at Elmia Motor Show 2016 mounted in a racing boat. It had just like this two carburetors and without compressor. The Merlin engine on the small picture was run for the visitors at Robot museet in Arboga. This copy is for an airplane as it is equipped with a compressor. The link for engines is from my visit at Duxford museum in England, showing several military engines. Read when Heinkel in Germany bought one copy of the Merlin engine.
