Default Where are Detroit Diesel Engines Manufactured?

Anyone know where Detroit diesel engines are actually made? Is there more than one plant?

Somebody with more knowledge will know for sure, but I thought all of the "highway" versions for North America were built in Redford, Mi.

Redford MI they have built a new plant in one of the Carolina's for the 2 strokes. DD also have a plant for the 53 series in Kansas don't know what they do in Kansas but I believe it is for military they do have plants in Mexico & probably other countries as well.

Are 2-strokes still being built new? I thought they went out of production years ago?

My neighbor works at the Redford, Michigan plant in their testing facility. A couple years ago he mentioned testing some new 2 strokes but we haven't talked about it recently. None of the 2 strokes capable of passing current emissions limits and that is why series 60 came along.

I read last year that Detroit diesel produced 55,000 two stroke diesel engines and a good number were purchased by the military. The rest were shipped out of the country to areas where there are no diesel admissions.

While on the subject of 2 strokes, here are some pictures that would make a 16V92 look like a briggs

These engines are probably for the 3rd world where the EPA does not rule. A new 2 stroke would be hard to get by the Air Police in any advanced country.

I remember reading a couple of years ago that a properly tuned 2 cycle diesel could pass the CA pollution tests. I hear they are the strictest pollution tests around so that says something for the old 2 strokes.
