The Automobile-Type Engine for Marine Service 310049

THE SUCCESS attained by marine engines as built by the manufacturer of motor-vehicle engines clearly proves that such engines are entirely suitable for marine service provided rugged automobile, truck or motorcoach engines are used as a basis. However, this involves the necessity of applying the principles of marine design and practices. The author describes and illustrates such an engine developed and built by a leading motor-car-engine manufacturing company.
This makes possible the use of cylinder blocks, crankshafts, pistons, valves, tappets and many other minor parts used in the motor-vehicle engines.
The outstanding advantage is the use of modern methods of production, equipment, quantity purchasing and the financial resources of the automobile industry.
