A remarkable J-35-A-33 Jet Engine originating with GE but major production by Allison. This engine and afterburner assembly are complete. In places, the outer shell has been cut away for viewing of the major interior components. A real show stopper, museum-ready. Consists of two large sections, the jet engine and the afterburner assembly. Measures about 36" diameter and over 16 feet in total length, and weighs approximately 2,500 pounds. Designed in the early 1940s, this engine type was used in aircraft such as the XP-84, X-5, XB-47, YB-49 and the leading fighters of the 1950s, the F-84 and F-89. With the afterburner, this engine develops 7400 lbf. Very few in private hands. (Shipped F.O.B. from Los Angeles, CA, subject to export permit)
