The Bristol Mercury VIII was
an air-cooled radial aircraft engine with nine cylinders. It was rated
at 840 hp (626 kW). Derived from the Jupiter, it had a bore of 5.75
inches (146mm) and stroke of 6.5 inches (165mm). The relatively short
stroke reduced the engine diameter significantly from the Jupiter.
Aircraft using this engine included the Blenheim.
