That is TO cunsumption.

Coolant flow was 750gal/m and for oil it was 71gal/m. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

It was to go in the B-36 until political lobbying had it replaced by the P&W R-4360s. The B-36 was underpowered because of this.

It is still the biggest ever designed for flight.
Two were built, one was test run at Wright Patterson.
None flew. One remains at the Smithstonian but
it not on display. The engine run at Wright Pat
was broken up for scrap.

Allison designed and mocked up a real terror.
The V-6840 used 4 V-1710 power sections!
Fortunately none were built, turbines took over.
Projected power for the V-6840 was 6,000hp+.

The P&W R-4360 remains the largest piston engine to fly.

Da...

So unnecessary, god, just put 6 of B-17th 1820 Wrights and you'll be fine!
