PAGE EIGHT SLYTEHvILLE, (ARK.) COURIER >TBW3 MONDAY, APRIL 21, 1941 * 'Who Else CouldIt Be? New Supercharged Motor! I? Set For Production This June DETROIT (UP) — Henry Ford's airplane engine, an advance into nevv fields of power and performance will be ready far proclui'iion in June, officials disclose. Te<:ts on a two-cylinder seymnU of the motor hav« complKnJ and only a few details o! the .super-charger syslcm must br- \vorkfd cut before actual production order:-: arc 1 placed. Army officials, anxious to t:o: i\^ powerful ne\v motor i:\io i'igh;iit!i planes, have closely wa'.ched i-i-sis through all stages and are exerting pressure on Ford engineers lo ni-'h Jinal details, an official said. j The Ford envrine. 12 cylinder.. V-iype will t;? ',ae third liquid- cooled job to be used in Amecii-an •watplanes. The Allison, of sh-.;lu>y m;re than 1.000 horsepower, currently is powering Hell. CuriU and L.-khesd pursuit ships, \vhik 1 :!»• Rolls-Royce Merlin, a British engine, soon will be turned out for the same jobs y the Packard Motor car company. Weight to be Iteduocd , Ford officials say the new power p.ant will out-perform any other ol" the same cubic inch cylinder cii-plscemenv now in use. It is expected to churn up between 1800 and 2000 horsepower at StiOO K.P.M., and send the \veiyht-to- power ratio below one pou:U per horsepower. The lightest engine : now in use in the- army air corps y. ? eighs about 1.2 pounds per horso- j power. ' Ford engineers said the basis for ; most of the extra power K the,! supercharger, which will be in use 100 per cent at all altitudes. It Ls driven by an exhaust turbine with no mechanical connexion to the engaie. a revolutionary principle which achieves a perfect aerodynamic condition because the' air intake and exhaust- are in the direction of flight so there Ls no diag from the intake and a pro, pulsion effect from the exhaust. Injection of fuel directly into the ! cylinder without, going inrougn a cart-ureter nvakes it possible for the supercharger to push air alone , into the chamber, better cooling! the exhaust, valves and piston head. | it was said. New Supercharging: System Supercharging at ground level — not currently practiced—increases horsepower 100 per :ent over the normal output engineers said. Typical Ford automobile mass production methods are to be used on the origins and special features to make production short - cuts have been developed. One Ls the casting oi certain parts such as cylinder sleeves and crankshaft instead of forging them to an" approximate shape and spending f tedious hours machining them to required size. An example of the time saved in casting an engine part is in the cylinder sleeve .which, when forged, weighs about- 110 pounds. When finished it weighs nine pounds, leaving 89 pounds of metal to be scraped and bored, out. By a centrifugal casting a rough sleeve weighing only 37 pounds is pro- wlth n sub-machine gun, a'tear-gas gun and ordinary luuuing rifles.
