This is a WW2 liberty ship VTE engine, liberty ships were used to carry cargo and were also built in the United States - 140 ton. This could produce a whopping 76rpm and could travel 12.7mph (11 knots). This was used around 1941-1945 and helped to carry large amounts of cargo at a time instead of using multiple ships. This truly was an amazing invention.
