That engine is making serious bucks. Oilchange is a joy to pay for.

Yeah and there are 10 of those in that bad boy engine. It's a 10 cylinder, 80,000 horsepower, 1,600 ton cruise ship engine. The article says it consumes 1,000 gallons of fuel per hour!

I stand corrected on the shaft. Hope you all enjoyed this picture. I thought about saving it for April 1st but at my age who can remember that long?

With all the great help I've gotten here both in direct questions and in reading old, old posts, I wanted to do something fun to say thanks.

Happy New Year to all you Workhorses.....

I think that Rusty can speak toward what type of batteries are needed if any but I would think that you need something like an APU to turn over that engine but I'm reaching. For as big as these engine are I would bet that they are very well balanced and low friction considering that a crankshaft could weigh as much as 300 tons.

While reading about the engine I found out quite remarkably that there isn't a camshaft.

At the Ripley's Believe It Or Not here in Myrtle beach, there's a large granite sphere outside of the building that must weigh a couple of tons and one can set it spinning with very little force.
