Development of Multifuel Features of the LD-465 and LDS-465 Military Engines 640371

Continental Aviation, through contract with the U.S. Army Ordnance Corps, has developed the LD-465 and LDS-465 engines at 140 and 210 bhp, respectively, as an outgrowth of the basic LDS-427 multifuel military engine. The engines are of conventional 6-cyl, in-line design except for those features contributing to their multifuel capability. These features include the Hypercycle combustion system, intake swirl port, water-heated intake manifold, a simplified manifold flame heater to aid in cold starting, and a fuel density compensator for maintaining equal power ratings on all fuels.
