All of the Detroit Diesels are two stroke and direct injection up to 2000 when Mercedes bought them.

My comment about the older Mercedes piston top shape as W-shaped was based on a cut-away view, which is what the illustration that I saw showed. I guess if you look from the side view of a cut piston with a star-shaped bowl, it forms a W from star point to star point. Looks like the Ford is similar.
1984 Volvo 240 diesel with a single tank Elsbett conversion: electric fuel filter heater, FPHE, glow plugs, and injectors. Also injector line heaters and block heater, running 20%kero/80%WVO winter blend.
