Deutz German Sub Motor
Posted by Big Jake on Tuesday, October 31, 2017 10:38 AM

I posted several photos of an old pump motor we are changing out at one of out Pump stations to my facebeook page. Hope you can see the pictures.

This old motor was manfactures by Deutz, its the same company and motor used in World War II German Submarines. We are replacing them from one of our drainage Pump Stations in St. Bernard. One motor is still in use and slated to be replaced in 2018. These motors were insalled in 1952 as war surplus when the drainage station was built. The motor still operaters and runs well. We are replacing them with new Cummings Deisels, I seriously doubt we'll get 65 years. out of the newer Cummings.

Nope, a german firm bought them and is shipping them back home, its a good deal for us as we actually made money on them as they paid more for them than we did back in the day. BUT I'm sure we had pieces/parts need to be made as well over the years.

Jake,

      Whose turn was it last to stand there with the oil can?

  Good engineering to last 65 years.   Lets see...65 years from 2017 = 1952.  The year I was born. Thanks Jake,.  Now I feel like I need parts.

 

     Jim.
