A local auction company is selling a Pratt & Whitney R-4360, 28 cylinder airplane engine from a B-36. This is part of an estate of a local guy that lives about a mile from me in Washington Court House Ohio 43160.

I have no idea what it’s worth or could bring? Also unsure when it ran or it’s condition. I didn’t know him but wondering how one squires a B-36 engine in the first place? Could somebody use it in a restoration?

He owned a stone quarry for years and had a hangar on his private strip. The typical collector / tinkerer. Old cars and aviation stuff. I’ll try and post link to auction page if anybody’s interested.

Quite a few years ago we were on an antique car tour on Vancouver Island and were treated to a tour of the base on Sproat lake where the Martin Mars waterbombers were based. They did a test flight that we got to watch and were taken through the hangar where they had several spare engines on stands. These 4360's are big. The sound of four of them on takeoff power is amazing.
