PETTER PH2M

Featured Posts

Welcome, Sosa.

Do you want to find out information about them?

I used to have one, in my first boat. It was noisy in a nice way, rather smoky when cold, and never broke down. I liked it a lot.

Have a look on the fuel injection pumps- some are marked "AVA" on the brass plates ( when it's an AVA engine!). PH2 is more powerful, I am familiar with these in dumpers- dead reliable, good cold starting, nice noise from the PH2. Very important to get the injection pumps working equally between cylinders, adjust the connecting links between pump racks.

There should be some tinware around the flywheel / fan and the cylinders to ensure adequate cooling. But the floor in front of the flywheel doesn't look to leave room to fit it.

Contact Jim Perkins on his web site http;//www.petterengines.co.uk/index.html  . He is ex Petter engineer very knowledgeable & helpful, I think he will answer all your questions & identify the engine for you.

Looks very much like a PH2 to me, that's the gearbox that they are usually fitted with

I'll take some pictures of an air cooled PH2 we have in store so you can compare them

All the air ducts are missing on your engine

Gearbox is or almost certain an old  Morris-Newage, also often fitted to BMC Vedettes and Captains, Coventry Victors.

That is exactly what it is, quite similar to the Parsons gearbox

Probably best way will be to establish the cylinder bore . the AVA has 80mm bore, the PH has 87.3mm.

The stroke of both AV and PH is the same at 110mm.

But of course that means having one head off. Or maybe an injector out and somehow devising a way to poke a bit of wire about and measure it, but that's going to be a real feat of ingenuity.

They are so similar in external looks that there may be no significant differences which you can identify.

Hope that helps, cheers Mick

This engine is a late type Petter AVA2 ( 11 HP) with rotary oil pump engine nos  3230035 to 3299999  the gearbox is a BMC . I  am just finishing off the earlier water cooled version AV type , see attached picture and have a PHW with a BMC box. 
 
Your engine was built between June 1961 and Feb 1966 the no in the pic B 2/142382 is a casting number.  
 
Thx for all mr. Perkins.
