Can you tell me...

Can you tell me what size of motor this detroit diesel is # 473910S0530255

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Ok

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just trying to find out if this motor is a DD15 or DD16

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the Equipment Mechanic to know before I connect you?

Maybe the torque of the motor if he can

sorry dont have that info right now but i can tell you that it is in a 2017 freightliner

If you can get me that VIN number and the truck information when you get a chance it would be extremely helpful. I am in the US and the engine number for some reason is not coming up in my system for some reason.

Click on these links for the specs and photos of each model.

DD16 specs:

DD15 specs:

https://freightliner.com/demand-detroit/engines/dd15/

DD15 gen5:

https://freightliner.com/demand-detroit/engines/dd15-gen-5/

Look at the LH side of the valve cover for the ID differences.

Serial #A472 051 11 02 is the number on the top side of the engine

That is a rocker box casting/part number for a DD15. Click on this link for more FYI.

This is what comes up. Click below.... As far as any build sheets, you would have to get those direct from a Freightliner dealer.
