1960 Dorman 3LB
Dorman 3LB - Year of Manufacture approx 1960
Engine current condition - Unrestored, partially dismantled (build slot start Apr 2018)
1960 built Dorman 3LB. 47hp @ 1500rpm, Originally powering a Jones crane this engine is now awaiting a major overhaul and conversion to marine specification.
Although a less sought after traditional narrowboat engine these Dorman's are probably the best sounding of all the engines we do, with its long stroke each firing stroke is well defined and gives that sound that will get passers by asking what engine it is.
This engine will be completed with 2:1 ratio PRM 280 gearbox and Twin alternators.
