The paper describes the design evolution and basic features of a new 900-hp lightweight, heavy duty diesel engine. Discussions are presented which show how early field experience in lightweight diesel engines guided special engineering studies, which eventually established important features of the new engine. The paper includes technical data regarding certain design parameters important in lightweight engine construction plus performance data of the 900-hp engine. Photographs are included which show the new engine and many of its major components.
