|John here, getting ready
the 400 lb engine onto our old 3-C
engine base. This engine is used as a
spare backup Research Method.
We got this one for free as one of our
large laboratories back east closed.
|Mr. Bruce Lockett helping with
installation of the engine back in
July of 1996. This poor engine sat
outside for over a year (covered
some what) until we had enough
time to start the installation.
Yes, Bruce is a character, and fun guy to work with.
|Bruce adding a fuel sample to
# 3 carburetor bowl. It takes
about half a quart of gasoline
to get a "RON" or Research
|Running an Octane Number
on the Research Engine,
( ASTM D 2700 ). It takes about
8 minutes if you're set up in the
correct octane range.
Note: RON + MON
over 2 = ROAD OCTANE
listed on gas pumps.
