Testing the Anzani engine 2016.08.14.

Before the final assembly of our first Bleriot XI we wanted to do some running tests of the Anzani 3 cylinder engine. As these are newly built engines we have to set every detail into working status. It requires 10-15 engine start ups. As the engine is a more than 100 years old design every piece need a special care. The engine has a very good performance as it did more than 100 kg pulling weight at 1300 rpm. Here you can find a video of the running test:
