Allison engines

Recommended Posts

Crates of Allison V-1710 engines at Page Airmotive in Yukon, Oklahoma in 1973. The Allisons were used to run pumps in the oil fields and were sometimes converted to run on natural gas.

Local dude tried one in a pulling tractor, but now the engine burns alcohol and sits in a 34 ford...

Looking for the following:

452nd and 447th Bomb Group items

Anything 12th Armored- especially uniforms

155th Assault Helicopter Company, Camp Coryell, or Ban Me Thuot Vietnam items[/center]

WWII US Navy Uniforms from the Battle Off Samar: USS Johnston DD-557, USS Hoel DD-553, USS Samuel B. Roberts DE-413, USS Heermann DD-532, USS Dennis DE-405, USS John C. Butler DE-339, USS Raymond DE-341, USS Fanshaw Bay St. Lo, White Plains, Kalinin Bay, Kitkun Bay and Gambier Bay...

That's a bygone era when items like Allisons were stored outside in wooden shipping crates and a picked-over Lightning could be found on a back ramp. Sure hope most of those engines and that P-38 airframe ultimately made back into the wild-blue....
