Mercedes Aero engine No. 35512. 6 Cylinder

 

The engine is correctly adjusted when:

Arrow on housing - - propeller hub or wedge(?)

Vertical shaft - - Housing

and the - - on the upper two timing gears

Line up 

 

Ignition - lift distributor plate - when

red hole in the gear - - red spot 

and the line on the gear with the line on the ignition housing line up

 

The aircraft is displayed for photographic purposes, the horizontal braces, bottom front, in the observers seat are easily removable.

 

edit - possibly a Mercedes DIII engine

Rob,

Sorry no, it only says that it has been set up to enable the (Daimler) photographic department to take photos of it.

Sorry Rob I don‘t know where I got Daimler from, only the the engine was made by Daimler. The sign would have been mounted by which ever Aircraft manufacturer used the engine. It sounds to me as though the photos were used for marketing.
