A New European Supercharged Test Engine for the Evaluation of Diesel Lubricants 740668
This paper outlines the development of a lubricating oil test for high-performance diesel engines, especially those of European manufacture. The tentative method, CEC L-13-T-74, was developed with the cooperation of the Co-Ordinating European Council. The lubrication requirements of European diesel engines is outlined, along with the steps in the test procedure which cover these requirements. Comparisons are made with the Caterpillar test methods.
