Hello, I have a customer with a railroad equipment and they want to repower it. The original engine is rated 215 hp @ 2200rpm coupled to a 28000 Clark transmission with torque converter. The maximun engine torque is 780 Nm. The customer wants to improve the performance of the equipment, so I am looking for the maximum input torque for this transmission.Thanks,Otavio C. F. Barros
Engine: Scania DN11
Engine is coupled to a Clark 28000 series transmission. Customer intends to replace the engine and I need to find what's the maximum input torque for this transmission.
Hello and thank you for using Just Answer.You're just about at the max rating for this transmission with your current engine configuration. 225 Hp and 880NM would be the most advisable input torque and hp ratings. Over that, you risk component failure, of the catastrophic variety.
