Ours were 3000 hp each, and drove a single shaft with 2 pinions on one bull gear and had electric clutches. Maneuvering combination was one engine running ahead and the other one astern and selecting direction via clutch engagement. We never had any big problems with them.

Very nice indeed.... I see these days here in Ulster you can pick various derivatives at anything up to £1500-£4000 ish....

I always liked the XJS and thought they were ahead of their time...

Thanks for posting such a fine example...

Don't know if it is exactly the same engine but I was looking through the window at out municipal power plant and saw something very similar with a Norberg placard. Big mother!
