1962 Gardner 6LX & 2UC Gearbox

Gardner 6LX - Year of Manufacture 1962

This engine was removed from a Thames barge to make way for a kitchen conversion after many years laying idle. This Gardner 6LX was a genuine marine unit complete with 2.960:1 ratio Gardner 2UC reduction gearbox. This engine produces 110hp @ 1300rpm and is fitted with 24 volt electric start. It has now left us as a used engine to start a new life powering a freight boat working in the Congo, Africa.
