Default info on 6v92 detroit diesel silver

Old Coach has a automatic in it Can you tell me every thing i should know about the 2 engines? Also how much horse power do they produce?

Here's a link to an earlier thread discussing 6V92s Click HERE:

Power Output Specifications (6V92)

  • 775 ftlbf (1,051 Nm) @ 1200 rpm; 253 horsepower governed at 2100 rpm
  • 816 ftlbf (1,106 Nm) @ 1200 rpm; 277 horsepower governed at 2100 rpm
  • 957 ftlbf (1,298 Nm) @ 1300 rpm; 300 horsepower governed at 2100 rpm
  • 1,020 ftlbf (1,380 Nm) @ 1300 rpm; 335 horsepower governed at 2100 rpm

You should be able to get your exact specifications from a Detroit Diesel shop if you provide them with the serial number that should be located on the drivers side valve cover.

Nothing really bad about the 2 stroke Detroit's except it might leak a little oil now and then. You should also Drive it like you are mad at it .
