    Now wait a minute Franger. He had to know what to look for to find it. I doubt he search every entry in wikipedia to find that.

    It is a GAA Ford. Not much in the way of good info in the wiki link. Hardly ever is.

    It is a cool engine. It would have been even cooler if Ford had been able to sell them as V 12 aircraft engines instead V8 tank engines.

    They have a very unique arrangement to control main cap movement and alignment.
    Notice the arch groove in the block bulk head that the cap locks into, along with alignment shoulders on the main studs.


    The connecting rods are normal forged I beam type instead of the fork and knive arrangment of the Allison. Much stronger. Also note that the camshafts are hollow.


    They dress up pretty nice too.


    And they look just plain bad ass in a 69/70 Mustang

    And here I thought the Sherman tank used a Chrysler engine. Well I guess you learn something every day. I do remember reading somewhere the Brits used an advanced version of their Rolls Royce Merlin engine in their tanks. I think it was called a Griffon but I'm not sure.

    Why yes you do, you are entitled to refer to yourself as the first to reply with the correct information. I think I remember hearing somewhere that in some country a long ways away that is a very honorable title to have bestowed upon a person, it commands great respect from near and far.

    They never stuck a Griffon in a tank. Too big, too expensive,and more power than a tank needed then. The Griffon was the original Rolls engine, but it was set aside to develop the smaller Merlin version for the Spitfire fighter. Its not alot bigger than the Merlin, it much larger in CID, and it makes considerably more power than the Merlin. Once Bernie Little had manage to corner the market of available Griffions, it pretty much assured him of total domination of the Unlimited Hydroplanes until the Atlas Van Lines turbine started winning. Aside from something the size of a Unlimited Hydroplane, the Allison/Merlin is about the biggest piece you can use for anything.

    The last years of the Griffions were used in high speed boats in the British navy.

    If you want to talk real power, there is the Rolls Royce V24 Vulture, and the
