1959 Dorman 3LB

Dorman 3LB - Year of Manufacture 1959

Dorman 3LB. 47hp @ 1500rpm. This engine was completed with 24v electric start, twin alternators and PRM750C 1.5:1 ratio gearbox. Originally powering a Jones crane this engine was converted to marine specification to be fitted into a narrowboat.

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.
