I recently purchased 4 Napier Deltic marine engine manuals. I've been searching the internet to find out what they might be worth and if there might be any interest in this model engine. If you haven't noticed, this is not my field of expertise. The manuals are,
1) Deltic engine Type T18-37K Series III Standard, spare parts catalogue, publication 520, in the Napier black binder.
2) Deltic engine Type T18-37K Series II Standard, spare parts catalogue, publication 454 issue 2, in the Napier black binder.
3) Overhaul manual for Deltec Series II Engines, published by Naval Sea Systems Command #Navsea 0941-LP-002-0010, publications 501,502,503,505.
4)Maintenance manual for Deltic Marine engine Type T18-37K series III, publication 505.

Any information anyone can provide is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Patrick

My apology for contacting you unsolicited, I am involved in the hopeful restoration of the TS Kellington, formerly HMS Kellington. Her official given No was CMS54.



I was wondering if you or anyone you know may have any information on this ship or its engines, I understand that the Generator is a “Foden” powered by one Delta engine. The ship at the moment is ion pretty bad shape but we think it is doable. Any help will be gratefully accepted at moment as we need to make a decision on weather we can do the project or let the council and the MP have there way and scrap her.

Graham,

As you may know, the Royal Canadian Navy - now no longer "Royal" - had a number of minesweepers which appear to have been identical to the "ton" class.

These vessels were double mahogany planked (though not diagonal) with all aluminum alloy frames and fastenings.

What I wanted to mention is that I obtained a large piece of the hull of one of these vessels that was cut up for scrap here. I was intending to salvage the mahogany for reuse. On disassembling the hull section I found that many of the fastenings were heavily corroded, some to the point of fracture.

I realized then that the Navy had known best when they disposed of these vessels. Though they appeared completely sound, they were not and the damage was only apparent when the hull was disassembled - not an easy task! Many of the fastenings were only accessible after the outer planking was removed.

You have so many wonderful historic vessels in the UK, I can't help wondering if the efforts devoted to a relatively new and less than historic vessel would not be better spent on one whose construction allows an almost indefinite lifespan, rather than one which would appear to have a very limited span due to her construction.

I'm sorry if that sounds discouraging, but please take it in the spirit in which it is intended.
