The 6.5L V8 diesel engine consists of the following major component groups (figure 1-3):
• Mechanical System
• Lubrication System
• Cooling System
• Accessory Drive System
• Air Induction/Exhaust Systems
• Fuel System
• Electrical System
Each of these systems was covered in detail in the prerequisite “6.5 Liter V8 Turbo Diesel Engine” training center course.
Most of these systems remain unchanged and will not be covered here. Some are reviewed briefly, as updates warrant.
You should consult the turbo diesel mechanical student handout #16015.12-1 for detailed information about systems not covered in this EFI course.
