Basic specs are open to everyone and include images, displacement, dimensions and weight, essential bolt tightening torques, the characteristics of the engine like its power and torque.
Essential bolt tightening torques are the main bearing cap bolt torque, the connecting rod cap bolt torque and the cylinder head bolt torques.
MTU 2000 main bearing caps Lateral socket-head screws : Step 1 = 80 Nm Step 2 = 280 Nm +20 Nm
MTU 2000 Con Rod step 1 = Tighten 25 Nm step 2 = Pretightening torque 240 Nm +20 Nm step 3 = Additional angle of rotation 90° +10° step 4 = Check torque @ 450 Nm
Cyl Head step 1 = Tighten 25 Nm step 2 = Pretightening torque 180 Nm +10 Nm step 3 = Additional angle of rotation 180° +10° step 4 = Check torque @ 400 Nm
Frequent abbreviations you will encounter in MTU manuals and literature: KGS - Kraftgegenseite - (Engine free end) KS - Kraftseite - (Engine driving end) OT - Oberer Totpunkt - (Top Dead Center)
MTU 2000 bore and stroke bore = 130 mm stroke = 150 mm MTU 2000 Displacement - Displacement per cylinder = 1.99 liter 8V2000 = 15.92 liter 12V2000 = 23.88 liter 16V2000 = 31.84 liter 18V2000 = 35.82 liter
MTU 2000 Cylinder designations MTU use the DIN ISO 1204 specs in which Left is defined as A and Right is defined as B. Sides are viewed from the driving end, or 'KS' in the ISO specs; this means as viewed from the flywheel. Numbering cylinders begins from the flywheel end starting with- A1 = Left 1; and B1 = Right 1. MTU 2000 firing orders: Rotation (facing rear end) - Counterclockwise 8V = A1-B4-A4-A2-B3-A3-B2-B1 12V = A1-B2-A5-B4-A3-B1-A6-B5-A2-B3-A4-B6 16 V = A1-B5-A3-A5-B2-B8-A2-A8- B3-A7-B4-B6-A4-A6-B1-B7 18 V = A1-B6-A3-B4-A5-B2-A7-B1-A9- B3-A8-B5-A6-B7-A4-B9-A2-B8
MTU 2000 Dimensions - approx guide - varies with every application, and can include accessories like marine coolers and so on: length 8 cyl length = 2005 mm 12 cyl length = 2106 mm 16 cyl length = 2815 mm width - all 8 cyl height = 1280 mm 12 cyl height = 1398 mm 16 cyl height = 1425 mm height 8 cyl height = 1315 mm 12 cyl height = 1291 mm 16 cyl height = 1291 mm
MTU 2000 Weights - approx guide - varies with every application: weight 8 cyl = 1790 kg 12 cyl = 2600 kg 16 cyl = 3200 kg
