DIY Gas Turbine (1)

My New Turbo (VT 50) which has come from a 16 Litre Cummins Lorry Engine. Thanks to Lee D (Kerosene Junkie) for sourcing me this beauty.

Compressor Section.
Turbine Section.
The flame tube from a scrap GTP30, cheating a bit maybe, it may save me some time, there again I may have to make one from scratch, this was scrounged from Ian and the fire extinguisher which will make the combustor case was acquired from Paul.

Laser cut items. Combustor lid flange, Combustor Lid, Engine mounting Bracket and the inlet to the turbine section of the turbo.

A home made adapter to connect the combustor flange to the combustor tube itself. This has been profiled to the shape of the fire extinguisher.
A GTP30 Injector Nozzle.

  Lucas CAV Fuel Filter Assembly.
I believe this to be a fuel pump from a BMW.
My speed controller setup for the fuel pump. Speed Controller, Battery Pack, Servo Speed Reaction Device and A Servo Tester.

This HP oil pump will provide the 40psi oil pressure required to keep the Turbo running.

Needle valve to regulate the oil pressure to the Turbo.
Oil Cooler Radiator.

  Oil Cooler Fan.
Oil Pressure Switch, as a safety measure, this will be used to only allow the fuel to be turned on if there is oil pressure.

Oil Filter Assembly from a VW, it it designed to fit direct to the original engine, so a fabricated back plate will have to be made, the start of the plate is pictured, I do have concerns whether it will seal correctly, I suppose we shall soon see.

3 Bar Pressure relief valve to regulate the oil supply to the turbo, I have a small concern that the rubber valve may perish with the oil flow, but if it stands up to that then I think it should work a treat.

Cheep Oil Pressure & Oil Temp Gauges & Sensors.
Igniter Exciter Unit & HT Lead.  
There's a chance that none of the above will be used, but I guess that these parts represent a good start.
