Photo Chrysler Dodge Diesel

Looking for any information on my engine. It is a 1930-1940 Chrysler Dodge 6 cylinder Diesel, serial number IND3-3676. It came out of a sawmill. I have found out that they were also in some trucks. I have never seen another engine like this at all. Thanks Tod.

Well I had a first edition Motors Truck Manual I gave it to a good home. They were mentioned in the repair section. I think that was a 1942 manual. How about a picture of the other side of theengine?

A 1944/45 Hastings catalog lists :
Dodge Diesel: Models WKDA, TDK, Truck Diesel" as a 6cyl with a 33/4 bore (no years shown)
Googling advanced search "Dodge WKDA" brings up a site with pix of a 41 with a (the??) diesel, and a forum entry that you have to register to read (didn't have time to check, but probably free) that sounds like a thumbnail history of the Dodge diesel.
Similarly Googling "Dodge TDK" brings up more recent ihits that don't seem to apply, but didn't have time to check.

Something about it says "BUDA"...what kind of injector pump is that? can't see it that well? Looks like Lanova-style injectors, right in the side of the head.

Couldn't bring up the Google hit for dodgecharger.com, that supposedly referred to the WKDA, but allpar.com has a Dodge truck history that says Dodge's diesel was built in 1939. It doesn't give any specs, but I assume they're on the web somewhere.

The "Diesel Engine Catalog" volume 10 of 1945 pictures this engine in three forms : (1) Chrysler Marine with up to 72 BHP @ 2000 RPM (2) Chrysler industrial rated at 60 BHP @ 1800 RPM for continous duty and (3) Dodge Automotive rated 100 BHP at 2600 RPM/240 FT lbs torque @ 1200-1300 RPM. The engines did use the Lanova system like Buda- 24 volt starting system and automatic advance of the injection timing.The industrial diesel picture I have looks like yours and the injection pump is pictured slightly different than the marine and vehicular engines-lacking a large rectangular box on top the pump main housing.
That sounds like a really neat engine and I predict it will drop the jaws on more than one of the modern Dodge/Cummins boys.I see on Ebay quite often operators and repair manuals for the Dodge Diesel truck engine/truck.

The Dodge diesel was designed by Dodge in 1939 for use in their big trucks, the road tractors, and it was the same cu in (331) as their largest gas engine, but the diesel was not a re-design of the gasoline engine. It was used in the 3 ton trucks (TKD, VKD, and WKD) in 1939, 1940, and 1941. It was not used in the same model trucks or road tractors after WW2.
As mentioned earlier, one is a 1940 VKDA truck in the Golden Age of Trucking museum, and I know of another one, recently found, that is in the original 1941 truck, in western Massachusetts. It is for sale, totally non-restored, non-running, but would be a one of a kind rarity to have. Our group has photos of the truck in its rough condition, if you care to look at it, or contact me. (I do not have anything to do with selling it, but would like to see it go to a good home.)
