FM 38TD8 1/8x10 Turbocharged Engine

Postby Peter » Wed Jun 02, 2004 9:06 pm

Anybody have any info on FM's 38TD8 1/8x10 turbocharged opposed-piston engine? Specs? When was it developed and reached the market? Is it still available? Any photos?

I came across the mention of it in a British publication from 1960, but all the info was very basic.

You should be able to find the rating information here: ... p_data.htm

You should find information on some marine installations here: ... marine.htm

I have seen these on the USCG high endurance cutters (combined diesel and gas turbine propulsion). The machinery set is enormous. These ships have EMD engines too, for ship's service generators.
