The GM 1-53X3 diesel engine was purchased by the Postgraduate School to be installed as a two cycle diesel engine, laboratory instruction unit. The objectives of this thesis were to design or select and integrate the necessary components to provide a laboratory test engine, to determine and document an initial set of performance data and to record a complete description of the entire installation. The engine is described. The parameters demonstrating the engine performance are determined, presented and discussed. In the appendices a detailed description of the component systems is presented. Illustrations and graphs have been utilized to make system descriptions and performance characteristics clear. Operating instructions, safety precautions and sample calculations are discussed. The engine is ready for student laboratory exercises. The instruments will permit exercises to determine output power, fuel consumption, air consumption and power distribution among the various energy loss factors. The engine is adaptable to other exercises with additional instrumentation. These modifications are discussed.
