The photos listed below are of the prototype Ford Industrial 6.8L engine and power unit currently under construction at the Fullerton, CA facility of Powertech Engines Inc. The photos shown below were taken by Powertech staff member Roger Norman; much of the construction and assembly shown were performed by Powertech staff member Felix Cacho. Special thanks are due to the Ford support team lead by Ray Wilson and the IPP engineering staff for their product support and engine provisioning. Thanks are due also to Doug Turner of Anderson Industrial Engines for his helpful suggestions, to Ken Stein of Stein Manufacturing, and to Roger Hein at Amarillo Wind Machine.
Amarillo provided the frame and had the unit on display in their booth at the Tulare Farm Show on February 8-10, 2000; the prototype engine has since been moved to Amarillo's production facility in Exeter, CA. Users interested in Wind Machine applications can contact Roger Hein at Amarillo Wind Machines at (559) 592-4256.
