SPROCKETS AND HUB
The Teledyne Vehicle Systems model AVDS--1790--8CR engine is a 12--cylinder, 90--degree, V--type, 4--cycle, air--
cooled, turbosupercharged diesel engine. The cylinder assemblies are individually replaceable units with overhead
valves and valve rocker assemblies in the head. The cylinders are arranged in two banks of six cylinders each.
Each bank of cylinders has an overhead camshaft arrangement to actuate the valves of each cylinder.
The engines fuel injection system utilizes a fuel metering pump which supplies metered fuel to individual cylinders
through fuel injector nozzles. The engine fuel pump assembly, located at the front of the engine, delivers fuel to the
metering pump. A turbosupercharger is located on each side of the engine at the rear. The exhaust--gas driven
turbosupercharger increases the air flow pressure entering the air intake manifolds.
