Thanks Peter!
Where did you get that one?
My 1944 6DG317 is rated a little higher than the equivalent 6DTG317 shown. I believe it is due to the generator end. I am almost certain it runs @ 1800 rpm and that would fit with the 30kW/37.5 kVA 3 phase rating vs 1200 rpm and 20 kW.

Any idea what the difference was between the 6DTG and the 6DG?

Hi Jim:

I bought the whole catalogue back in the summer, have just got round to sorting out some other catalogues and it was in there. I will scan the whole catalogue later and put it on the websites.

There isn't a sheet for your rated genset, it goes 18kW - 20kW, the next sheet is 37.5kW - 40kW. They do list one in that sheet I posted though.

I've posted a slightly higher resolution version of the table on here, for those who need to see small detail.

The original is deleted.

Should have gone back and looked, I do have the 6DTG317 engine, but the model number of the set is 6DG317 instead of the model designation shown here.

I do believe the weight listed! Amazingly heavy set. I have never lifted it here, just skidded it around on in the ground/snow as the case was.

Peter:
Page now quite clear; a question came up on another site re' a NG (or gaseous fuel of some kind) powered Buda 8 cyl engine "about 5 feet high and 9-10 feet long, with a 4cyl starter engine", altho post didn't specify whether length was all engine or included an attached clutch or such.
I wasn't aware Buda had been into anything that big (but there's lots of things I'm not aware of!); the biggest I have in my engine lists, assuming the numbers are cid, are a 6 1879 and an 8 2505. If Budas' "mr" means marine, they both include marine versions. On the other hand, my stuff is almost all on truck/tractor engines, with very little on heavy industrial and practically nothing on marine.
Just off the top of your head, d'you know if Buda built anything larger, like Wauk etc, up into several thousand cid??

Bud:

The 8-DCS-2505 had a gasoline starting engine of unspecified size. I have a picture of that engine with the starting engine mounted traversely over the bell-housing, and a starting handle is clearly visible.

That was in the late 1940's, and I think that this may have been their largest power unit.

The 8-DCMR-2505 is indeed the marine version, shown with electric starter motor of 32V.

6-3/4" bore 8-3/4" stroke
