Preparation and Operation of Diesel Engines in Construction and Industrial Machinery for Operation in Cold Climates 750473

The contents of this publication is the summary of many papers and varying subjects pertaining to cold weather preparation of diesel engines for operation in cold weather and arctic climates. The approval by the U.S. Government on the construction of the Alaska Pipe Line and opening of the North Slope oil fields was instrumental in furnishing the initiative to publish existing documentation in one paper.
