engineering

 

The RUC Enterprises archive has some old engineering information from Clinton’s Maquoketa facility.  While much of it makes for pretty dry reading, every now and again I run across something that might be interesting to a Clinton engines enthusiast.  The biggest item would be the blueprints for a rotary engine.  The prints are currently loaned to, and on display at, the Clinton Engines museum in Maquoketa, Iowa.  ( Click here )  A visit to the museum is highly, highly, recommended.  The volunteers and staff have done a wonderful job in refurbishing the office building.  There are two floors jam-packed with interesting material.  Everyone I met there made me feel very welcome.


The material below will hopefully grow as I find the time to make additions.  Please keep in mind this is raw information which is posted only as a curiosity and has no particular relevance to actual production engines.
