How's this for an engine!

How does a 42 cylinder Radial engine sound!
It is a 147.1 litre, 10,000 hp Zvezada M503A engine with a 126 spark plugs and a 168 valves. Max revs is only 2500 rpm but guess you wouldn't need a lot of revs!



Check out all those dizzys!!



One mother of a throttle body!



And it's one hell of a tractor.

It would be interesting to know if it came out of an airplane or a boat. Looks like a mechanics nightmare to me.

Slightly different spelling to what I had, but must be the same engine.

"The Zvezda M503 was a maritime 6 row, 42 cylinder diesel radial engine built in the 1970s by the Soviet Union. Its primary use was in Soviet missile boats, which used three of these engines."
