Other News

We recently acquired two GM Cleveland Model 248 engines that had originally been used aboard another WW-II submarine, USS Stingray SS-186. The two engines will be used for parts for the restoration of Cod's engines. These very large V-16, 1,600 HP diesel engines were originally built right here in Cleveland, Ohio -- the last in 1943. Each engine, with its attached DC electrical generator, weighs about 43,000 pounds (21,000 kG). Here is a photo showing one of these engines loaded aboard a transporter.
