HMS Warrior Engine Cylinder & Crank
One of the two cylinders of the two cylinder trunk steam engine manufactured by John Penn & Sons which producing 5772 indicated horsepower at 56 rpm during sea trials giving a speed of 14.08 knots under steam alone. The ship carried 853 tons (real tons :) ) giving a range of 2100 nautical miles at 11 knots. when under sail the funnels were lowered and the two bladed, 25 ton propeller could be manually raised to reduce drag - requiring 600 men to do so.

Now you're cooking Keith, mans stuff here
What beautiful machinery, though not as clean as this when running, just a couple of spots of oil that need wiping up there.
Difficult to get a scale on this till I saw the vertical ladder on one of the bearing housings, it's huge.
I also would guess that the worm wheel an pinion on the left is for demonstration purposes to turn the engine over, just a guess though.
A smashing shot, great composition and conversion, luv it, just up my street.
More to come I hope

As George mentions it's hard to judge the scale, but if two cylinders produce that amount of horse power they must be pretty big.
Interesting to pan around the image looking at the different components, can't say that I know what most of them are for, but the worm and worm wheel is puzzling to me.
Thanks for sharing, must be a very impressive thing to see in real life as it were.

When I looked at the thumbnail I just new George would want to get right in amongst this with his oily rag Great detail in this and as said above it is difficult to get some idea of scale but going by the ladder it must be massive.

Ah yes,... proper Boys' Own stuff here. What a fine looking mechanism and not a microchip in sight. Having found the ladder, I now realise just how big this is; just look at the size of those nuts I assume that it's just a static display now? They don't ever fire her up? (I know she doesn't sail).
Silversnapper  [Mar 11, 2014 at 08:09 PM]
No, it can't run under steam Alan but there is a mechanism that turns it over at about 1/4 of it maximum working speed of 55 rpm and very impressive it is too. Hmm, how bit is the spanner that turned those nuts i wonder?
