We were contacted by a vessel owner in Ireland looking for options for his Gardner 6LXDT engine, installed in his working vessel for many years and now in need of an overhaul. We were able to offer an engine on a full service exchange from our stock, reducing his downtime during his off season.
Our engine was fully stripped and rebuilt using all new parts, including new pistons and liners manufactured by us one year earlier. It was full power tested on our Dyno before being crated and shipped, and installed in the vessel one month later.
Although our hearts still lie with the well known naturally aspirated Gardner engines, the Gardner 6LXDT is a fantastic engine, and running it on test proved just this.
We look forward to our next turbocharged project…
