One of the simplest, and yet, most reliable diesel engines of all time, the two-stroke Detroit Diesel holds a legendary status till this day. In case you were born in North America, chances are you’ve owned a vehicle powered by this bad boy. From logging trucks to public buses and all sorts of heavy equipment, these monsters were a force to be reckoned with.
Every mechanic knows them all too well, and with this awesome video, you will learn all about it in no time. Who knows, it might come in handy one day. Basically, on a Detroit Diesel two-stroker, the spark plug fires twice as often, thus doubling the power, compared to a regular four-stroke motor. Furthermore, because of this, there is a lot less wear and tear on this machines, and that’s why we see a lot of 50-year-old vehicles still going strong today. That is quite an accomplishment for such an old design.
This highly enjoyable video will get into details, portraying perfectly how these machines run. You’d be crazy to miss it.
