Brian,that's an amazing find. coupling to it may prove to be interesting, and sometimes the old analog control systems can be drifty till you get the dust off the circuits.
hopefully you got the manuals with it, i just love figuring out stuff like that, i wish i lived down the street from you...
if it's like other water brakes i think the water does more than cooling, it may be used as a hydraulic fluid.
maybe the people here can help, https://www.dynamometer-world.com/index.php/reconditioned-dynamometers/horiba-schenck-wt470.html
Will show some pics of the sensors, maybe we can discuss how to install them and what for. Not familiar with Diesel engines up to now (and I am seriously planning to leave it that way)i could see exhaust temp sensors for diesel engines to help set the maximum fuel from the pump. maybe the class had a runaway engine at one time and the long remote became sensible.
i'd lose that green color. later production schenck had a very nice industrial grey that would look great. not the light grey of electrical panels, but a darker shade.
Investigation has been started. Found some hints already but not an operation manual.Hubert,
Maybe you could usefully google ?
It's like that that I found the impossible to find for my Sun 504.
Hubert, I´ll forward you a telephone number from a classic car guy located in Wülfrath.Tedesco said:It requires a water connection for cooling the brake, so where shall it be placed?
