Sounds incredible. I wonder if that is an original Me109 engine? I saw a documentary years ago about the 109 and a mechanic at Duxford was interviewed about working on the engine. The mechanic mentioned something about how they had to make absolutely sure they didn't bend/break the crankshaft (or maybe prop shaft) because another one couldn't be made today with the type of machining available. Are replica Me109 engines made? Just curious.

Apparently from what I read, Rolls Royce didnt have the machinery which could overhaul components due to the tolerences that were designed into the Daimler Benz engines.

In other words, whoever has a running DB engine takes veeeeeeerrrry good care of it lol

Yep thats an original Diamler Benz 601 engine in that Emil.

It was the crankshaft that couldnt be remanufactured

Nope no DB-600 series motors have been produced since the war
