Need to source lightweight engine for use on a 30ft hovercraft. Require aprox 280 hp, but engine needs to be as light as possible.(1200 lb max)
Looked at petrol engines but no use in the very hot weather here.
Can anyone advise me on possible engines
Thanks

Well,
The Canadian Coast Guard has had a long standing success with the DEUTZ Air-Cooled Series engines in their Hovercraft.

Might be worth looking into.

Regards

The Navistar DT530E is from 280-330 HP and its weight is 1400 LBS, Great torque, parts are everywhere, the only other option is a pumped up B or a C series Cummins, the Deutz engine range for this would be a 1015 @ 3000 + lbs

'We sold a Turbo in 2 weeks to a guy in Houston! We also sold the first engine we listed - an old Hatz. It took 2 months to sell but that was OK as we couldn't move it locally. We track visitors to our website and we get lots from DieselEngineTrader.com. Your website really works, it's a great service and we'll be using DieselEngineTrader.com for years to come!'
