THREE sizes of six-cylinder Diesel-engines for automotive service have been developed by this company and are now in production, these being interchangeable in mounting dimensions with its six-cylinder series of gasoline engines.
These modern Diesels develop power which equals, or exceeds, that of a gasoline engine of corresponding displacement.
Subjects treated include noise, smoke, installation, performance, power output and maintenance, together with fuel and lubricating-oil costs.
A feature of these Diesels is a spherical combustion chamber located at the side of the cylinder with a spray of fuel entering at the side, below the center of the sphere but injecting across its center.
Comparisons between Diesel and gasoline-engine performance in similar service are made.
