The work contains calculations to determine the deformation and stress in the block of a currently produced small displacement compression ignition engine. It is also an attempt to introduce some modifications to reduce the mass of the calculated component. In the first step, based on measurements, the model of the engine block was developed. The Autodesk Inventor 2016 software was used. Two additional components were also designed to provide the block closure: a simplified cylinder head and an integrated main bearing support. All elements were imported to the Siemens NX 12 program. The calculations were carried out for different cylinders and different values of the combustion pressure. An attempt was made to introduce some modifications to reduce the weight of the calculated element.
