Thanks Juan Carlos. That would be bulk carrier ALGARROBO ex-JONANCY that was wrecked on the Muelle Barón, Valparaíso during a storm on 27 June 1963.

Listed as still having a triple expansion steam engine- but perhaps diesel auxiliaries by then?

I found information that the remains correspond to the ALGARROBO II, bulk carrier ship stranded in 1963..

Are you sure about this being from an ANGAMOS? The first three in the Chilean Navy had steam engines - this looks like a diesel of 9cyl (or more if the right end is broken off) - but the fourth ANGAMOS had only 8 cylinders and was sold in 1993 to Greece, suffered a fire on delivery voyage as ARMONIA and was broken up at Piraeus the following year.

The best solution, for cooling the engine!
