This is a spare piston and conn rod for the massive engine! Piston had a tag on it stating that it weighs 3550 lbs!

Saw an injector for one of those ship engines not long ago at Fred Holmes (diesel injector and pump service shop). It would fit into my smart, but only with the passenger seat down so it could go lengthwise, and I don't think the car would handle the weight. And that was only a big marine diesel, not one of the truly massive container/tanker ship ones. Some of those monsters have a displacement per cylinder well over 1000 liters. 100-200 rpm. Torque in the millions of foot-pounds.Wärtsilä makes the really big ones, search Wärtsilä for info.
