History of the Waukesha VHP Series of Engines (added August 2011) The history of the VHP series of engines begins in the oil fields of East Texas in the early 1920's. Waukesha Motor Company was instrumental in introducing multi-cylinder internal combustion engines to replace the large and cumbersome steam engines. Waukesha engines were in demand in the newly discovered East Texas oil fields. In 1924 Waukesha introduced three of its largest engines up to that time. One was the popular Model GU.
It was a 4 cylinder engine with a bore and stroke of 5.375 x 6.25, and a CID of 567.3. The other two engines were the Model WS and WL, also 4 cylinder engines, with bores and strokes and CID's of 5.75 x 8.00, 831 and 6.25 x 8.00, 981.8 respectfully. In 1926, another of the 'W' series of four cylinder engines was introduced, it was the Model WK and had a 6.75 inch bore and a 8.00 inch stroke displacing 1145.1 cubic inches. But the oil fields needed still more power, as oils wells had to be drilled deeper and deeper to find the 'black gold'. By 1929 Waukesha introduced two 6-cylinder engines with 8.5 inch stroke! They were the 6 cylinder Models, 60S, 60K with 7.00 and 7.75 inch bores respectfully and CID's of 1962.7 and 2405.5.
By 1930 the first Waukesha engine with a bore and stroke of 8.5 x 8.5 inches was introduced and became the standard of the oil fields, paving the way for the future VHP series of engines. The model was the 6 cylinder 6LRO with a displacement of 2894.0 cubic inches. In 1931, Waukesha introduced, what would be its largest 4 cylinder engine, the Model WOK with a bore and stroke of 7.50 x 8.00 and a 1413.7 CID. In 1935, an 8.5 x 8.5, 6 cylinder Hesselman oil engine known as the 6LRH was introduced. The Hesselman was a low compression, fuel injected, spark ignited, multi-fuel engine that could run on just about any kind of fuel! The Hesselman engine's success was tied directly to unavailability of quality fuel around the world.
In 1949, Waukesha introduced the model 6LRZ, which had a bore and stoke of 9.375 x 8.5 displacing 3520. Diesel Electric Locomotive Manual. 5 cubic inches. In that same year the Model 6LRD went into production. It was a 6 cylinder 8.5 x 8.5, 2894.5 CID, Diesel engine. This was the first Diesel for this size engine and it replaced the Hesselman version that had become obsolete because WWII hastened the availability of quality fuel around the world. The Diesel engine used the famous Ricardo pre-combustion chamber that provided smooth power and complete burning of the fuel. Then in 1954, Waukesha introduced it's first V12 engine, a 8.5 x 8.5 bore and stroke engine with a 5788 CID which was designated as the VLRO because it was essentially the 'V' version of the 6LRO and had double the horsepower! This engine was the direct ancestor of the future VHP series of engine that would become the new standard for the industry.
(It is interesting to note that at the time, new engine models were being designated by their part number series. The part number series assigned to the new V12 engine was the 200,000 series and thus the model would have been known as Model 200. But the sales department over ruled tradition and the new model was marketed as the VLRO, the V-12 version of the popular six cylinder 6LRO engine.) In 1955, the VLRD, the Diesel version of the VLRO was in production.

The VLRO became L5788G. The VLRD became L5788D. It was also the year that the Model L7040 was introduced and was a 12 cylinder, 9.375 x 8.5, bore and stroke engine with a CID of 7041. In 1967 the L5788 series of 12 cylinder engines were extensively redesigned with open chamber diesel technology, 4 valve heads, angle split serrated rods, new manifolding, and strengthened lower end of the crankcase just to name a few of the many improvements.
The F2894 and F3520 6-cylinder engines were then completely redesigned using many of the design features of the redesigned Vl2 engine. These redesigned 6 and 12 cylinders where then designated as the VHP family of engines. By tradition, the letters 'V H P' stood for Very High Power. But the actual meaning of the letter 'V', which was also used in other Waukesha engine families, was not that utilitarian. It was no more than the first letter of the word 'viscount', a popular marketing word during the 1960's that the advertising manager at the time took a liking to. (Again it is interesting to note that VHP family of engines was originally planned to be designated as the VC family and a newly introduced family of high speed engines was to be designated VHP.
