This outstanding eight cylinder 24.138 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 0.328 lb./per b.h.p./hour which represents an overall thermal efficiency of over 40%. It is extremely smooth and quiet in operation throughout the whole range from low idle speed of 250PRM up to maximum power output.
These engines were used primarily for marine use, both commercial vessels and private yachts, and some locomotives.
The Gardner Diesel Engine – 8L3B is fully supported with sales, service and spare parts.
