Busch-Sulzer Diesel Engine - Page 2

Vertical Shaft

The crankshaft operates this vertical shaft that turns the camshafts.


Gearing on the crankshaft drives the vertical shaft to the camshaft (foreground) and the vertical shaft to the governor.


A Jahns governor head controls the speed of the engine.


The halves of the flywheel await installation.  At 8 feet in diameter, the flywheel weighs 10 tons.
