Rolls-Royce Merlin · 1933-50 (all engine models) #2# Owners' Workshop Manual

by Ian Craighead

An insight into the design, construction, operation and maintenance of the legendary Second World War aero engine

The Rolls-Royce Merlin aero engine still has the power to turn heads and raise hairs on the backs of necks, for this was the heart that gave life to the famous names of Hurricane, Spitfire, Lancaster, Mosquito and Mustang. This is the inside story of the mighty Merlin, from its genesis in the 740hp PV-12 engine that was first flown in 1935, through its rapid development during the war years until in its ultimate version, the Merlin 130 series designed for the de Havilland Hornet, it produced over 2,600hp.
