Default Re: 1-71 detroit diesel (GM)

The cast iron cleaned up well. Still working on the accessories. Blower,water pump,starter, ect. How many GM1-71`s are left in the world today? I have seen 3 in my lifetime. Delco power generator school in Detroit, Engines Incorporated in Philadelphia in 1967. And the one i have now from Pearl Harbor Naval Base. My guess would be less than 100. I am told that they were used on Liberty ships and they are now at the bottom of the sea.Click image for larger version
