This outstanding six cylinder 10.45 litre engine offers the greatest degree of efficiency, durability and refinement. The specific fuel consumption rate of the engine when directly coupled to the dynamometer is the remarkably low value of 0.330 lb./per b.h.p./hour which represents an overall thermal efficiency of no less than 39.73%. If the engine is operated slightly below maximum torque, it does attain over 40% thermal efficiency. The engine is designed for use with a fresh water closed circuit heat exchanger or keel cooler system in marine installations. It was of course used in many automotive vehicles also.
The Gardner Diesel Engine – 6LX is fully supported with sales, service and spare parts.
