( 4Egevara )
In 1935 it was decided to assign to the CTZ tractor diesel engines company the production of this engine. In the same year was built the first diesel engine M 17, designed so that it can be installed on a tractor-type C 60 with minimal modifications. In April – June 1937 assembly line factory was rebuilt, and from June 20 was launched serial production of a new tractor S-65, the country’s first diesel-powered.
At the time of the creation of a diesel engine was extremely difficult. The main difficulty was in the manufacture of precision fuel system components. When designing a diesel engine Chelyabinsk designers have successfully solved this task. Four-stroke diesel four-cylinder M 17 had a capacity of 75 hp at crankshaft speed 850 rev / min. Engine capacity 13.53 liters. Bore 145 mm, stroke 205 mm. The diesel engine was carried out using the two-cylinder four-stroke gasoline engine starting in 20 power of 18 hp Starting the engine wound up by the handle installed on the front page at the bottom of the hood. Otherwise, it is very similar to those that today are on the tractor CTZ. Ignition system – from the magneto. Number of gears in the box remained the same as the C-60. Maximum traction 4200 kg, max speed – 6.5 km / h Tractor weight 10800 kg.
Unlike the predecessor S-60 the diesel S-65 tractor already had a cowl, and some cars are equipped with a canopy over a workplace of the tractor operator and even cabins. The S-65 tractors gained wide recognition both in agriculture, and on buildings, and in army where they were used as tractors of heavy tools. Delivered them and for export. In 1937 the S-65 tractor received “Grand Prix” at a World Fair in Paris. These cars are shown in I.Pyryev’s popular film “Tractor operators”.
Due to lack of fuel oil in the prewar years, a widespread practice of translation automobile and tractor engines powered by gas-producing plants. Do not stand aside and Chelyabinsk Tractor Plant. On the basis of the tractor S-65 was established gas-modification of SH-65, production of which was disbursed in 1938. To the left of the workplace tractor installed vertical cylindrical boiler, known as gas generator. It high-temperature solid fuel (Birch chocks) were transformed into a combustible gas generator, where he worked, and the engine. Gas engine MG 17 created on the basis of mass M 17 diesels. The diameter of the cylinder is increased by 10 mm, working volume increased to 15.5 liters. In the cylinder head with holes for the two plugs per cylinder, and increased the diameter of the valves and channels for them. Engine power was 60 MG 17 hp at 870 rev / min.
At the front of this modification has established itself as unpretentious in service and reliable in operation.
