“As removed from aircraft engine with shown accessories.” This is a Curtiss Wright Twin Cyclone.
|“As removed from aircraft engine with shown accessories.”|
It includes an excellent engine mount, Engine firewall with fire detector loop, Nose gear case, all cylinders. Most accessories are removed from accessory section.
This engine will need a major inspection and overhaul before it can run again.
No log books or records. Sold as parts with no warranty real or implied.
Great value here: Cylinders all present, Good cylinder Assemblies can cost well over $1000.00 per cylinder. This engine would be a great parts source for a currently flying warbird or restoration project. Nice unbent Engine mount is very valuable as well.
I apologize for the poor iPhone pictures and the dirty condition of the engine. It needs a good cleaning with a pressure washer by someone who can do it without causing any damage. The last 2 pictures are from the internet of an Air Apaches B-25 bomber and a stock photo of an installed engine on a B-25.
History: In 1935, Curtiss-Wright began work on a more powerful version of their successful R-1820 Cyclone 9. The result was the R-2600 Twin Cyclone, with 14 cylinders arranged in two rows.
The Twin Cyclone went on to power several important American-designed World War II aircraft, including the A-20 Havoc, B-25 Mitchell, TBF Avenger, SB2C Helldiver, and PBM Mariner.
Over 50,000 R-2600s were built at plants in Paterson, New Jersey, and Cincinnati, Ohio.
This engine is for sale locally and I reserve the right to end the listing at any time.
I simply have too many projects and not enough space or time. I hope this engine will be sold to get another aircraft flying again.
I suggest using Uship.com for economical shipping. Engine is bolted to a metal pallet for transport. Will be wrapped in plastic prior to departure or you are welcome to pick up, area code 30043 north of Atlanta, Ga.
Happy bidding and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. I will do my best to answer quickly. Thanks, Robert
