Default How does a 2 cycle detroit diesel work

I have an 8V92 in my 94 pt40..... I subscribe to the detroit diesel forum.... stumbled on this video on that forum.... interesting fellow there talking about the internal workings of the 2 stroke diesel in his pick-up truck.... refers to the 8V92 with a bit of show and tell.... I found it very interesting and thought I would pay it forward to my forum friends...

Ciao

That video is a good, simple, explanation of how a two stroke works. For the new people who don't understand the system, and have never seen the inside of one.

GOOD TO KNOW! Really didn't understand 2-stroke before. Really didn't have a need to. Gas engines like the back of my hand, But always wanted to understand the intake, compression,power, and exhaust cycles. Thanks for the novice explanation. Jeff

the 2 stroke Detroits have been around since the 30's.

They came in 2 cylinder to 16 cylinder,and maybe bigger.
