Alaska Diesel Upgrades Lugger Engine

Alaska Diesel Electric, maker of Lugger marine diesels, has made significant improvements to its L6108A model, bringing the high output rating to 410 hp. The 436- cu.-in. engine has several improvements including a new cylinder block and new alloy pistons, and completely new oil spray piston cooling which now incorporates an internal oil gallery and spray nozzles. A high output turbocharger and new fuel injectors bring hp up to 410 at 2,700 rpm.

"After many years of success with the engine, we felt that with a few key modifications its performance could be greatly enhanced," said Harold Johnson, president of Alaska Diesel. "We're very excited with the result, and we expect that the L6108 will set the standard in its new hp class."
