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.
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.
Waukesha discontinued building Diesel engines in order to concentrate on it's gaseous fueled engines, which had become the major share of the business.
The Waukesha 6LR, VLR and then the VHP series of engines have been the standard in the oil fields and gas compressor stations around the world for 84 years!
