Hello everyone, I am new here. This is my first post. A few years ago a friend gave me an APU engine which his grandfather brought back from Japan when the war ended. He told me that this engine came out of a Betty bomber, and that it used to drive a generator on the airplane. Although I have not had it running, he told me that his grandfather used to run it from time to time. I don't know much about it other than it turns over freely and has compression. I don't dare attempt to start it, because I don't want to risk damaging it. There is a nameplate on it, but it is in Japanese and I cannot read it. I am wondering if anyone might have any information about this engine. I am going to try to include some photos with this post. If I have posted this in the wrong place, please accept my apologies and move the post to where it belongs. Thank you in advance for any information.
