Good morning. This is the GM 702 CID V-12 known as the Twin Six. GM produced these in the early sixties. Something like the lowest power-to-weight ratio engine of all time. But here’s the thing: 250 horsepower and 585 pound-feet of torque. So this engine can twist the heck out of its crank, but can’t do all that much work? Like you could pull an aircraft carrier with this engine, just not very fast? Do you mind giving me a Physics lesson on this?
