Power Outputs

Power r/min 1500 1800
Continuous kW 13.3 16.5
bhp 17.8 22.1
Fuel Stop kW 14.6 18.2
bhp 19.6 24.4


1. Power ratings measured at the flywheel and fuel consumptions, apply to a fully run-in, non derated engine without a radiator and fan fitted and other power absorbing accessories or transmission equipment
2. The overload (intermittent) capability applies to a fully run-in engine.  This is normally attained after a running period of about 50 hours.
