SAM-2 (S-75) Rocket Engine Manuals Wanted

Sat Apr 20, 2013 7:27 pm

Hello,

Today I went crazy at an aviation fleamarket and bought a second stage liquid fuel rocket engine of a SAM-2 (Soviet designation: S-75) anti-aircraft missile.
If I get even more crazy I might want to build a test stand and actually run it for fun.
I´m lookning for manuals, drawings and specifications for this engine, if possible in a language I understand, this means English, German, Spanish or French.
I would first need to find out which actual subtype it is and everything about maintenance, control and running it.
So far I know that it ran on a hypergolic mix of red fuming nitric acid and a kerosene type fuel.
The designation of the engine is Isayev S2.711, which existed in several subvariants.

Thanks,

Jan

I have no idea about the answer to your query, but please feel free to point me in the direction of places where aviation flea markets exist that include rocket engines!

Today at Speyer Technical Museum in Germany. You´ll recognise it from far away due to the LH Boeing 747 on stilts in it´s yard.
I also bought a WW2 RAF navigator´s bubble sextant. I´ll clean it up and get it working again.

Beautiful. I take it the 747 was not for sale in the flea market?

That's crazy! A rocket engine at a flea market!

Imagine some guy has a rocket engine at home, wonders what to do with it and thinks that he could try selling it in a flea market. And than Jan comes by and actually buys that thing.

What? No improvements? What's with that gyro-stabilized M3 sleeve clamp that connects the outer two club heads with the micrometer drum? Wasn't that always a bit unreliable?
And here I was thinking you're a bona-fide engineer!

Here is a picture of this engine (complete with turbo pump) in my living room:


Mind: It is as tall as the hi-hat in the background.

Now... what are you going to do with it?

Roasting chicken? 



But... kudos to your acquisition!

Check this site:
www.copenhagensuborbitals.com

As colleague of mine had bought a jet engine of a Czech L-29 jet trainer a few months ago. He wants to build a mobile test stand and run it in his driveway in a village in the Eifel hills... . We were joking that he had the strongest leaf blower in the county.
He is a jet engine mechanic by trade.

I got hooked on space travel ever since I watched the moonlandings live as a boy.

Oleg,

Thank you! I will try to contact them during the next few days. Yesterday I took the engine to work and after end of my shift I borrowed our boroscope and did an internal visual inspection as far as I could get into the engine. There is some corrosion on the turbine rotor and it is a bit difficult to turn, so I will have to take the turbopump apart to see what the bearings look like and to remove the corrosion with Scotchbrite.
Pictures to come.

RWessel, no, while I have a permanent girlfriend, I live mostly alone in my own place.
