Amazing.

And slightly depressing in that it clearly demonstrates my complete lack of mechanical skills!

Been talking a bit with the guy that owns the Hamilton car museum. He bought the T57 from the Baillon collection in France. His engine is essentially the same as what im building. Hes given me access to any parts I want when hes got it in bits. To copy and 3D scan etc.

So Ive got some pretty cool parts sitting around the living room now. The sump is a beast :lol:

Oh my god. I had no idea of the scale before. That's immense.

And that's great news on the access to parts to copy!

Holy moly those motors are long. Like Neil I had no idea of the scale. When they sit under a beautiful long snout of a Type 35 you have no idea.

The block is 760mm long but the overall engine is atleast 1100mm. That’s including cam gear stuff and bellhousing etc. The T57/59 engine is pretty big compared to the T35/37 though. They are about 760mm overall with smaller cam gear and not twincam. T57 is 3.3L and T35 is 2.3L. Either way they are pretty big engines for their size! :lol:
