BMW stationary motor...update and clarifications needed


Recommended Posts

Some may remember that motor on youtube...1924 Diesel BMW motor.

In fact , it is not a true "BMW" motor. It is a different company altough they share the same letters name. The owner was kind enough to send me pictures and details about it.

Here is the clarification...

BMW was found in early 1800.

On the 1930, they changed their company name to B.M.V.

Björneborg Masking Verkstad/Werkstad = Pori Machine Factory.

Pori is city in Finland.

Björneborg is Swedish name for Pori.
