Since Industrial Injection has been blazing trails in the diesel industry. With new advancements in fuel delivery, turbochargers and engines; we have the . Yes, Cat does make the long stroke, inline series engine but now you are back to the same old high profile engine again. To make matters worse, with say the rated at hp, you now have a bigger, heavier engine running at a higher speed and more fuel to give the same power as the little 6V92 does with the same space requirement. This article is written with several ideas in mind. Foremost is to provide you with some insight into some of the problems and real costs of owning a high performance diesel powered boat. Secondly, to give some insight and tips on what you face when purchasing a used boat withhigh performance diesel engines. The early boxcabs are often credited as the first with a diesel engine although the very first railcar to utilize an internal combustion engine was the McKeen Car. In Brian Solomon's book, "The American Diesel Locomotive," the idea for this concept came from William McKeen, Union Pacific's chief of motive power. Even by the early 20th century.

  When you’re buying a new boat, or repowering an existing boat, you may need to decide whether gasoline or diesel is right for your needs. If you’re not as familiar with diesels as you are with gas engines, and still think of diesels as smoke-belchers, just be aware that there’s been a lot going on over the past several years when it comes to diesel engine technology for marine applications.

In a diesel–electric locomotive, the diesel engine drives either an electrical DC generator (generally, less than 3, horsepower (2, kW) net for traction), or an electrical AC alternator-rectifier (generally 3, horsepower (2, kW) net or more for traction), the output of which provides power to the traction motors that drive the locomotive. There is no mechanical connection between the diesel engine .   Diesel combustion. The diesel engine is an intermittent-combustion piston-cylinder device. It operates on either a two-stroke or four-stroke cycle (see figure); however, unlike the spark-ignition gasoline engine, the diesel engine induces only air into the combustion chamber on its intake engines are typically constructed with compression ratios in the range to The introduction of Propulsion Engines (High Speed) from Yanmar.   But just in case if you want to go in details i will strongly recommend “Marine diesel Engine” a book by Nigel Calder; click over here to check its current price on amazon. Different Components of Marine Diesel Engine 1) Bedplate. A bedplate is made of two parallel girders running across the length of the engine.
