1948 Kromhout Gardner 3LS (LW)

Kromhout Gardner 3LW(LS) - Year of Manufacture 1948

Kromhout-Gardner 3LS (LW). 32hp @1000rpm, this engine type was built under licence from L Gardner & Sons by Kromhout Motoren Fabriek in Holland. This particular engine is essentially a Gardner 3LW with the added feature that it is a true ships diesel engine (scheepsdiesel) with split crankcase specifically designed for marine use to allow all maintenance to be carried out from above. Similar crankcase design to that of the Gardner L2 series engines.

This engine had been sent to us for inspection and major overhaul after its removal from a 1905 Lux Motor that the owners had recently purcased. It was found that the crankshaft and associated bearings were in a very poor condition which required extensive crankshaft reclaimation work. After a full overhaul and change of settings to allow 36hp @ 1200rpm the engine is now being returned to its owner for refitting.
