Looking for pictures, specs, dimensions of Type 547 engine

Postby EricThePoolBoy » Thu Jul 21, 2016 11:59 am

Hello all, I'm not a spider owner of very knowledgable about them but I was hoping that people on this forum could help me out or possibly point me in the right direction. I came across the 547 engine when researching other engines and was very interested in turning it into a functional model. You can see some of my other models that I have made by going to my YouTube channel "ericthepoolboy" or google 3D printed engine.

So I'm here looking to see if anybody has detailed pictures of the parts, dimensions, specs, etc. I would be modeling this just from what I can gather on the internet so it won't be 100% dimensionally accurate but it will move just as the real engine does and look pretty close. So if anybody has anything that can help, it would be much appreciated.

Eric, these are very complicated engines using beveled gears to drive 4 cam shafts. There's a man named Bill Doyle in Jackson, Wyoming who's an expert on Type 547 4 cam engines. You could try calling him at (307) 733-9919 and talk to him about your project.
