Does anyone have any dimensions for the RR Pennine engine, ie Length X Breadth X Height? I have the cylinder dimensions.
Oh blast. Just realized that the English for "pénien" is NOT "penine" but "penile"!!!Nick Sumner said:I'm not sure what you mean Stargazer? The Pennines are a range of hills in England.
In 'Rolls Royce aero Engines' page 94, Gunston states;...suggesting that the Pennine and a paper engine called the Snowdon were being put forward as civilian engines as insurance against gas turbine failure.
Let's have a chat about this. I have never been clear on the 61L, 75L and 100L engines. I have seen them called the Exe 61, Exe 75, and Exe 100. I have seen both the 61L and 100L called Snowden. Some sources give no mention of the 61L, while others give no mention of the 100L, and most give no mention of the 75L. It seems like the 61L achieved some "off-paper" development, but the 100L did not. I have seen numbers for the 61L from 3000-5000 hp and 4,000-5,000 hp for the 100L, but no numbers for the 75L.tartle said:by the way I thought it was a 100 litre engine that would deliver 5,000 hp; with 4,000hp coming from the 61 litre version?
