romanoarchives.altervista.org The Diesel Story (1952) Producer: Shell Oil Company Traces the development of the diesel from the Otto 'SILENT' gas engine of 1877, through Rudolph Diesel's engine, to the machines that now drive ships, trains, tractors, trucks and cars. Fairly numbing history of the diesel engine. From the birth of the steam engines, scientist were always looking out for ways to make engines faster and more fuel economical. The secret seemed to rely on the pistons, I guess. I am not that mechanically inclined, so this was a bit beyond my league. Quite interesting to see the stock footage they used though, which was credited at the end, from a German and Swedish movie. Part 1 of 2 Editing by ROMANO-ARCHIVES.
