Original Turbomeca Palouste 4 turbo compressor
The Following engine means a great deal to me. It was the first engine that I ever owned and it arrived incomplete in several boxes. Over the course of a year and without manuals and never having touched a gas turbine before I got it back together and running. I later sold it to purchase the next engine (Apprentice wages being what they were) and it went to a college. The college took a perfectly good engine and stripped it with chisels and hacksaws and inaccurately aimed big big hammers. A very nice man in the college eventually took pity on the poor thing and very kindly donated what was left of it back to me. It arrived in worse condition than when I had first clapped eyes on her with quite a bit missing. When I am in the UK which is quite rarely now I am getting her stripped right down and she will be fully re worked and put back into a perfect, factory fresh and operational condition.
engine has now had the air intake/oil tank and the
accessory drive coupling pilfered to enable
