Default MTU Detroit Diesel 2-Cycle

This popped up on the Yahoo DD list a few days ago, just in case anyone didnt see it, here is a link to the company that bought DD from GM, looks like they have full support for the 8v and 6v 92 series 2 stroke engines.

MTU-Detroit is a business unit of Tognum AG, a German Co. with about $4 billion in sales in 08, that is publicly traded. Diamler AG (Mercedes) has a 22.3% ownership share. Here is the link:

I learned about it at the Detroit Allison Dealer when getting annual service 2 weeks ago.

Where does this put the 8.2L DD for parts availability. I keep hearing because they are no longer made, there are not many parts left in stock and they will run out soon and a 8.2L will not be able to be repaired or maintained.

Any Truth to that?

8.2L DD? I haven't seen them often referred to in liters. I converted it to cubic inches (500) and divided by 6 and 8 and didn't come up with the expected 54, 71, or 92 that I would have expected for a DD V-series.

What engine are you talking about?

8.2 fuel pincher. Often called the 8.2L. Its a 500 CID 4 stroke that DD brought out in 1980.

I honestly don't know the answer to that question. I believe quite a few Bluebirds have DD engines, but I don't know if the 8.2L was ever standard or just a repower or something.

I've never heard of one, repower or otherwise, but somebody else may pop up with an answer.
