PART II. PARTS LISTING FOR DETROIT
Diesel Series 53 Engine
All engine components are divided into twelve major groups of functionary related parts. A list of the groups appears in
the index of this manual.
Within each group different design of similar equipment are shown, each group uses a type number. The type number in
one group has no relationship to the type number of another group.
All optional material type numbers are shown on the engine Option Plate. The plate is shown in the illustration below.
The names and type numbers of optional equipment built into the unit at the factory are listed on, this plate, along with
the unit model, serial number and custom specification (if any). Material not listed on the Option Plate is standard
equipment. (Copies of the information, on the Option Plate Work Sheet, are furnished to distributors for their files.)
To locate a part establish the group where the part is used (see index page). Turn to the page listed for that group.

item description. The quantity column is the number of times the part is used in the assembly shown.
