Section II. EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION AND DATA
The diesel engine (FIGURE 1-1) is two cylinder, four cycle, fuel injected, naturally-aspirated and liquid-cooled. The firing
order is 1-2. The number one cylinder is toward the fan end of the engine. The serial number is found on right side of
the cylinder body at number one cylinder location. Rotation of engine is counterclockwise as viewed from flywheel.
All locations referenced herein are given facing the flywheel end (rear) of the engine.
1-8. DETAILED DESCRIPTION.
1-8.1. Cooling System. The cooling system consists of a radiator, water pump, cooling fan, thermostat and connecting
hoses. The fan is mounted on shaft of water pump and both are belt driven from the crankshaft pulley. The thermostat
controls engine temperature and is installed in the top of engine. The function of the cooling system is to maintain a
specific operating temperature of 170° to 220°F (77° to 1040C) for the engine.
1-8.2. Lubrication System. The lubrication system consists of the oil sump, a gear type oil pump, pressure relief valve,
spin-on type oil filter and internal passages within the engine.
1-8.3. Fuel System. The function of the fuel system is to inject a metered quantity of clean atomized fuel into the engine
cylinders at a precise time near the end of the compression stroke of each piston. The fuel system consists of the fuel
tank, electrically driven transfer pump, fuel filter/water separator, fuel filter, and a fuel injection pump and fuel injector for
each cylinder. The fuel tank, transfer pump and fuel filter/water separator are not mounted on engine.
1-8.4. Electrical System. The electrical system is 24 VDC operation and consists of a battery charging alternator,
starter, externally mounted battery and other items as required. The battery charging alternator is mounted on front of
engine and is belt driven. When the engine is operating, the battery charging alternator supplies 24 VDC to recharge the
battery and maintain it at a full state of charge. The starter is mounted on the flywheel housing and when energized
engages the ring gear of the flywheel to rotate the engine.
