Dorman 3LB - Year of Manufacture 1959
Engine current condition - Undergoing Restoration
Dorman 3LB. 47hp @ 1500rpm. This engine will be completed with 24v electric start, alternator and PRM750C 1.5:1 ratio gearbox. Originally powering a Jones crane this engine is now available to grace your engine room and now awaiting 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.
