1960 Dorman 3LB
Dorman 3LB - Year of Manufacture approx 1960
1960 built Dorman 3LB. 47hp @ 1500rpm, Originally powering a Jones crane this engine underwent 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 was completed with 2:1 ratio PRM 280 gearbox and Twin 175A alternators.To see a video of this engine running after overhaul click here
