I wonder how much horsepower and torque the siren can handle...
The Chrysler-Bell Victory Siren was powered by a 140hp in-line 8 cylinder engine, and the Chrysler Air Raid Siren a 180hp V8, for what it's worth. That doesn't tell you what it *could* handle, though.

Re: Chrysler in New Zealand

The pictures are still around at least, not sure if the siren in Zhangzhou still works. I can't believe it! Thank you so much for finding these. It had been so long that it felt like I was recalling a dream I had, but sure enough, there they are. The same sirens from those long-lost video clips. Be...

Re: Chrysler in New Zealand

I thought for a moment someone had really found a Chrysler-Bell Victory Siren. *Sigh...* Fix your post. Maybe 15 years ago - just going from loose memory - there were known to be two Chrysler-Bells still in China that the US sent over there. The only two known to remain. One had since been fitted wi...

Re: CLM Siren Restoration

I would like to add, if you are having any trouble with that control unit: If you can trace out what is going on with the in-tact wiring to the best of your ability, I could take a crack at figuring out what to do with the rest of the cut wires to get this thing operating. A large part of my job inv...

Re: CLM Siren Restoration

Neat! I'm more fascinated by that old open-style contactor. Can't quite tell what's going on there. Looks like what appears to be a pair of normally-closed contacts (that's odd) and another pair in parallel on the other end underneath... something? Have ya reverse-engineered the schematic yet? Curio...

Re: A siren explodes during testing

Large masses spinning at high speed are terrifying! I would be a bit nervous firing up a GIANT pedestal grinder that we had at the college where I was taking manufacturing classes. Someone told me a story about it sending a wheel through a wall once. I always stood off to the side of that thing. The...

Re: Lion King’s MS-190 design was copied from another company.

They've been ripping off other companies' sirens for well over a decade now. This is what China does. Not to mention the epidemic of counterfeit products coming from there.

Yet we still trade with them...

Re: i need your help.

Option 1: Hike around everywhere until you see it. When you see it, that's most likely where it is. Option 2: Hike to the general direction you did before. Within a mile or so. Then set up camp. Wait... Listen... Be patient... Keep listening... The siren will eventually reveal itself! I hope you're ...

Re: Lowest mounted Siren in US

I caught a glimpse of this from a street over a while back, driving through Mt. Angel, OR. Next time, I need to pull in there and take a look. I highly doubt this is active - can't read what the sign says. [EDIT] Well I'm dumb, should have searched first. Definitely just a display. I'm still going t...

Re: The ghettobolt

Cut the siren to fit the poles... yep, makes sense!
