"Competent in many things" — that's an accurate description of the ALCO diesel. Whether the diesel needs be for marine propulsion, power generation, standby power units or pumping — you will find your

ALCO "competent".

Reliability is proven in thousands of demanding applications worldwide. Identical construction methods of the basic cylinder model sizes allow interchange- ability of major components, trim inventory costs, and also allow standard modifications to be inexpensively added, thereby easily adapting the ALCO to any specific application requirement.

Maintenance costs are exceptionally low — a major cylinder overhaul takes less than four hours. Our fuel consumption figures are the envy of many other engine users and manufacturers, and — we are not stopping here. New improvements and products are in the offing — including dual fuel and spark ignited gas engines.

All of this is the result of years of diesel experience — a joint total of three and a half centuries within the

GEC Diesel Group of which ALCO is a part. Tie this to

ALCO's continuing investment program at it's Auburn,

New York manufacturing facility to incorporate the most modern features of production technology in the manu- facture of diesel engines and you will readily recognize the dedication ALCO has to it's present and future customers.
