The photos listed show our first "Irrigation Package" for the Ford WSG1068 engine. These units were assembled and delivered to one of our DOEMs in May of 2000. The photos (and much of the construction) are courtesy of John Graesser. Special thanks are also due to the Ford support team lead by Ray Wilson and the Ford Power Products (FPP) engineering staff for their product support.
This unit illustrates a number of options that are common in irrigation applications. It has a heavy duty air cleaner, and in addition to the usual safety shutdowns for high coolant temperature and low oil pressure, this unit also has additional safeties for (pump) water pressure and engine oil level. It also has a tach, voltmeter, and hour meter, and a special 24 hour timer (which is in the red box under the instrument panel). The timer provides a simple shutdown for timed water cycles - - when the pump is mounted (it is not shown in these photos), the unit can be set to run for any time duration up to 24 hours; it then shuts the engine and pump down.
In addition, we should note that the exhaust manifolds (as shown) have been reversed (left & right -- it also gives us the "upward" direction), and the oil dipstick tube rebent and its mounting point relocated to make sure that there is adequate clearance for the exhaust pipes to clear the rear engine housing.
