This sale is for one Williams WR27-1 Turbine Engine , Running and Complete. Werun themup on our test standprior to saleand insure they areoperating within spec.s.You will need toadd a 24V power source ,a small hydraulic power unit (available at surplus center) andfuel to start.I have several unitsall with many useable hours left.I will be selling the lowest hour units first, in order .These engines where used as on boardair producers and electrical power generatorsfor starting and operating the carrier based S3 Viking Anti-SubmarineAircraft .They incorporate a 5kva @115V x 400HZ generator running off an auxilliary reduction gearbox and an oversizedcompressor turbine producing 69.8 lb/min @ 50.9 psia air flow for starting larger jet engines. .Designed to be a completely self-contained "swappable" unit forthe combat arenathey includeall systems including oil pump/reservoir/cooler, fuel pump/controller, hydraulic starter (we have converted these engines in the pastto electric start withoutproblem)and various ancillary systems. These units were decommissioned prior to any failureas the aircraft they were used inwere replaced by newer designs. As such they are removed with more than 50% useful life remaining and should be suitable for any ground based usage . They are easily converted to thrustor the extra compressor air, usedto start larger engines, may lend itself to supercharge the engine boosting power output. The "rated" HP is 70-80hp however it was , and is, common practice for defense contractors to "de-rate" an existing engine as much as 50% .in order to meet offer parameters thereby avoiding the expense of designing an entirely new engine.
A complete set of manuals is included with the engine as well as technical help if needed., I will arrange SHIPPINGbut BUYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL SHIPPING COSTS .
