A cluster of 8 H-1 rocket engines lifted the Saturn I from the launch pad. (See the original diagram with specifications.)

The H-1 engine is a 200,000 lbf (890 kN) thrust LOX/RP-1 engine, used alone in the first stages of some Thor - Delta rockets and the Jupiter rocket. It is derived from the Navaho missile, and was simplified and improved for S-IB use. It is used in clusters on all S-IB rocket stages. Later it would be uprated to 205,000 lbf (912 kN) of thrust. The H-1 preceded the F-1 engine, which was used on the Saturn V rocket.
