1934 Pobjoy Model R

Price:   £25000

 

Rare Pobjoy Model R 75hp engine for sale. It is a complete "egg", if I understand the term. This engine has the motor mount, all the exhaust, oil tank, baffles and factory cowling. It is missing a few spark plugs for some reason. It has a three bladed prop and hub. The engine is mounted on a display stand and turns freely. These engines were used in the Comper Swift airplane (the Shuttleworth collection has a famous one that flew from London to Australia).

 

International normal power: 75hp

Airscrew speed: 1400 rpm

Weight including hand starter, dual ignition, airscrew hub: 130lbs (59kg)

Overall diameter: 25.5" (647mm)
