 [No title]
Experience of marine engine building and conversion of the Liberty engine to designs from the Army and Navy had given Allison a background for it to be awarded a Navy contract for a two-stroke diesel airship engine, trials of which were successful although the engine was not subsequently used.
Ultimately, the airship engine supply position was not to materialise as the Macon was lost on the 12th February 1935, and with it went the Navy's airship programme.
A new engineer, R.M. Hazen was then put in charge of the engine development, and the output began to rise, with over 140 hours of the type test passed at 1000hp in the sedcond half of 1936, and the V1710-C8 passed its full type test at 1000hp @ 2600rpm in March 1937.

 Rolls-Royce Corporation (formerly Allison Engine
SUMMARY: This amendment adopts a new airworthiness directive (AD) that is applicable to Rolls-Royce Corporation (formerly Allison Engine Company) AE 3007A, AE 3007A1/1, AE 3007A1/2, AE 3007A1, AE 3007A1/3, AE 3007A1P, and AE 3007A3 turbofan engines.
Since an unsafe condition has been identified that is likely to exist or develop on other engines of the same type design, this AD is being issued to require initial and repetitive inspections for bearing material contamination of the engine oil system, to prevent events caused by the rapid failure of the number 1 bearing.
For engines that have been modified, altered, or repaired so that the performance of the requirements of this AD is affected, the owner/operator must request approval for an alternative method of compliance in accordance with paragraph (c) of this AD.
