Detroit 53 Series Diesel Engine Specifications and Information
The Detroit 53 series 2 cycle diesel was presented in 1957. Although the engine utilized a roots kind blower like its larger 71 series equivalent, it's categorized as a naturally aspirated engine. Rather than being used firmly for performance reasons, the blower's purpose was to enable scavenging in the cylinder during the exhaust stroke. A turbocharged sort of the engine, which still used a blower for scavenging, was provided starting in 1977. "53" refers to the fact that, irrespective of total engine displacement, each cylinder displaces 53 cubic inches.

All 53 series diesels, irrespective of displacement, feature 4.50 inch stroke and a 3.875 inch bore. It was provided in 3 cylinder, 6 cylinder, 4 cylinder, 8 cylinder and 12 cylinder configurations. The 8 cylinder version was mainly used in marine applications, although it was much less famous than the marine 8V-71. The 12 cylinder version is very rare and was reportedly only manufactured for 1965 to 1968 model years; it is believed that fewer than 25 of these engines were placed into service. This likely because the larger 12V-71 was more fitting for applications that needed an engine in this hp range and could manage the special restraints of a long, 12 cylinder engine.
Note that all Detroit 53 series engines utilize a unit injection system. See Detroit 53 Series, 2, 3, 4-53 Engine PLUS 6V-53 and 8V-53 Diesel Engine Manual for more details about the diesel engine.
