Yeah I saw that. That was a great episode. I'm surprised Jay collects aviation engines.

Folks,

Jay has enthusiasm, good tech knowledge and is polite with his guests. An easy watch.

For a fun car show, I like 'Road Kill', but that's another story.

It's probably easy to mix 4000 rpm for 3000 rpm.

I am unsure if there is a consencus that the Merlin engine won the war. There were some others involved. It's likely the experts disagree.

Certainly one of the greats.

RE: Jay Leno's garage.
Yeah I watch it all the time.
As a biker I like that he features a lot of less common bikes from the past.
Not just Harley's and Indians.
A lot of rare stuff I've never heard of.

There are no single things or events that won or decided the war. The Merlin nevertheless was an excellent engine, not without flaws and imperfections. If an aircraft engine won the war however then it most certianly was a Klimov, Shwezow or Mikulin, if you know what i mean. Smile

Good things to say about the Merlin:

compact and lightweigt
fuel efficient (because of rahter low displacement, i will comment later again about this)
reliable
lots of potential for furhter development (started with ca. 800HP as designed and was pimped up to 2000HP late in the war, including fitting it with a turbo).

Downsides of the merlin:
Rather low displacement (which has advantages, but has also disadvantages).
And, of course, early versions were carburetor driven Dodgy No
To get high HPs out of a rather low displacement engine, you have to boost it, but this involves complex engineering you need high grade fuel and it puts heavy strain on the engine. It additionally limits the usefulness of the base engine frame, which was evident when very late Spits had to be equipped with the much more potent Griffon.

Just a short idea what i am talking about. Comparing the displacement of various engines:
Merlin: 27l
Griffon: 37l
DB601: 33l
DB605: 36l
Jumo213: 35l

Given a certain, caomparable technology and materials availiable, the engine with bigger displacement will (in the long run) be better, because you will able to build variants with more HP with more ease in general.

Then you might be interested in this: A nearby museum that has a whole collection of Münch (which is rather well known if you grew up in Germany in the 70s)

Particularly this one (only 15 built): Münch Mammut 2000
2.0l turbo with some 290HP Gasp , strongest bike in series production to this day.
