Hmm, nice shot , what a beaut! A 12 cylinder MAN - B&W 12K98MC6 with those lovely poppet valves.

This puts out 68,640 kW or for you pre-decimal lot, 93,261 HP @ 94 rpm for 23 knots .

nice picture :)

what are those "towers" on top of the engine, Injectors?
I have to admit that I know little of 2 cycle engines of this size.
Other than the engine in my DKW LOL
Coasters had usually 4 cycle engines.

Bearsie,
the "towers" are the hydraulically operated poppet valves.

Ok, let's see your photos of the DKW bike please !

Rick

Thanks for the answer.
Sorry, no bike only a Moped, my DKW's were cars we had like 5 of them in the family. Now known as Audi aka "Auto Union" (the cars, not my family)
But I'll dig some out for you Patalavaca :)
