ROLLS-ROYCE DIESEL ENGINES 600016

ROLLS-ROYCE diesel engines were designed so that they would be adaptable for many different applications. From a simple engine design, based on a cylinder of 5⅛-in. bore and 6-in. stroke, engines were developed in the following basic arrangements:
  • Four, six, and eight cylinders, with swept volumes of 495, 743, and 990 cu in., respectively.
  • Turbocharged, supercharged, and normally aspirated.
  • Wet- or dry-sump lubrication.
  • Left- or right-hand build.
  • Horizontal or vertical configuration.
  • Single or coupled units.
  • A variety of take-off points, with full engine power from the front of the crankshaft.
This paper describes in detail one typical engine — the supercharged dry-sump 6-cyl configuration.*
