Ronaldson – Tippett Type CH Diesel Engine
The Ronaldson Tippett Type CH diesel engine is one of the later productions of the Australian company that became one of the pioneers in the field. As a later production, it has the trademark of the earlier Ronaldson Tippett productions. Of course, it has that classic and trademark rugged feel, as well as the solid reliability that can be expected for most of the company’s productions. But since it was a later production, it has that sleeker look that reflects the trends of the time. This proves that the Ronaldson Tippett company is really dedicated in producing the finest and the best of the times.
Technically speaking, there are also some differences—which is, of course, only expected. For instance, the cylinder head of this model is different (it has a conical shape, which is beneficial since it increase the engine’s compression ration). It has an inch long combustion chamber and a massive flywheel. All of these are not usual to any Ronaldson Tippett engines. Of course, the biggest change is that this model is a diesel engine (the previous ones had been keresone and petrol).
From the Type N and the Austral engine to the later Ronaldson Tippett Type CH diesel engine—the Ronaldson Tippett company had proven itself worthy of the label as an industry pioneer.
