This outstanding six cylinder engine was designed as an upgrade to the 6LXB/6LXCT with turbocharger and higher capacity, with a bigger block and larger pistons. The cylinder heads are also very different to the LXB range, however the crankcase is very similar. This was the last of the Gardner engines designed with a timing chain arrangement before the introduction of gear drives. It is used in many yachts, work and passenger vessels and still some automotive vehicles.
The Gardner Diesel Engine – 6LXDT is fully supported with sales, service and spare parts.
