favorite this post Westinghouse Jet Engine Model J30 19XB - $5000 (roseville) hide this posting unhide

This engine was used at San Jose state in their Areospace engineering department. This is a really cool piece in really good condition and mounted to a rolling and rotate-able test stand. item is in CA and I can help deliver to most of CA or will load up and ship if needed.

its great early example of the jet fighter age

Westinghouse submitted to the Navy a proposal for improving the performance and decreasing the weight of the 19B. This reconfigured engine was designated 19XB. The 1,600 lb thrust of the 19XB was achieved primarily by adding 4 additionnal axial-flow compressor stages.

The 19XB was used in the Gruman WTB3F-1, Douglas XB-42A (as auxiliary engines) and the Northrop X-4. The primary application for the 19XB engine was the McDonnell FH-1 Phantom.

A total of 261 19XB engines were made.
