Abstract

Conventional internal combustion engines modified to burn hydrogen fuel offer a good transition mode to a hydrogen economy for transportation applications. Details are given about the development of one such approach. This effort starts with a conventional 454 cubic inch Chevrolet V-8 engine that is then modified in various ways to accommodate the use of hydrogen; including specially formed intake and exhaust passages, modified cam, and fuel injection. Because the application is for constant speed application, tuned intake and exhaust is used.
