Engine Information and Specifications

  •  Diesel Outboard

    Engine Details

    A two-stage direct-injection system uses a small charge of compressed air to finely atomize the diesel fuel as it injects it into the combustion chamber. Atomizing the fuel into a fine mist allows for ignition via spark to occur while delivering enhanced high rpm running quality. A glow plug works in concert with the spark plug for improved cold weather starting and idle quality. An on-board Propulsion Control Module (PCM) microprocessor optimizes fuel and spark timing for improved running quality and performance throughout the engine's operating range. SmartCraft® Engine Guardian provides real-time, self-protection engine fault diagnostics and messaging.
