The Rolls Royce B61 is more powerful than the B60 used in Ferrets and Pigs. B60 4.2lt & 120bhp and the B61 is 4.8lt & 140bhp. Would any one be interested in the B61, I will be getting some take-outs shortly.

Hi Bob,

I rebuilt a B61 a few years ago for a Dennis fire engine. Goes well, twin SU carbs! Would be good to convert one for a Ferret..... or a Humber

Yes they have the twin SU's fitted, one engine is painted yellow.

cheers

Bob

Hi Bob

what was that B61 configured for? The only B61 engines that I knew of in MoD were in RAF ground equipment like aircraft starters.. I notice the fan is reverse flow, ie drawing air from engine so looks like it could be from a generator.

I had heard that they were used for starting jet engines. I have no idea how that was accomplished. There seemed to be a few around as I saw about half a dozen at a farm near Chester a few years ago.
