    Default New (Machine) in my workshop

    Have received my Russian V12 on 63 liters 1200 horsepower. I was going to put it in an old military volvo. There will be a lot of special manufacturing needed to make it work

    That looks like a lot of fun. How much does that engine weigh and what is the max rpm?

    I think same engine used in some 4wd Kirivitz tractors imported to Canada but not 1200 hp. I worked on an ag project in Kazakstan that had one of those tractors it was using about 10 liters of oil in 10 hours. Guys on the farm said the "good" ones were put in tanks and the rejects went to the tractor factory.

    I have built transmissions and torque converters for engines that made 3000 horsepower and 2000 foot pounds of torque at 10000 rpm. This was for 1/8 and 1/4 mile drag racing and they didn't leave at near that power as I would take out 10- 12 degrees timing and 10 pounds boost at the starting line. And the car and driver weighed about 2200 pounds. I can't imagine what it takes to make a drivetrain hold up with that much weight and peak horsepower at such a low rpm.

    Naw....You got's to get up to 4000 hp before you drop down to 1000 rpm.

    Seeing that engine I think of 1 thing:

    Those V12 gensets (US built) that I posted about a few months ago are only 350 (?) HP and 1200 rpm.
