The Ford 1600 Diesel Engine 840997

The most important target in the development of the first Ford passenger car Diesel engine was fuel economy. Also required were a compact engine package to allow installation in small cars, a robust design for long engine life, and a configuration suitable for further development. Specific design features in the cylinder head and fuel injection pump drive contribute to durability and packageability, and detailed development of the combustion chamber design, gas exchange process, and fuel injection equipment has resulted in excellent fuel economy.
