Equipment Degradation – Not just when in use.

Equipment Degradation – Not just when in use.

We’re currently overhauling a couple of Twindisc gearboxes as part of a project on a beautiful 20ft yacht, built back in 1967. The engines have been out of use for some time, but the gearboxes have been maintained to running hours, so the owners were expecting the gearboxes to just need a quick check over before they’re reused. It turned out not to be as simple as that. During our inspection, we found two issues that had absolutely nothing to...

Caterpillar 3616 Overhaul – Small End Bush 4P6125

I’ve had a few interesting conversations with a contact at an overseas textiles mill and during one of those conversations, I formulated a plan to help him save £64,687 during his engine overhaul.It kind of goes without saying that he was pretty pleased (and amazed!) that this was possible, so I thought I’d share the simple idea that created that saving – even if you don’t have any Caterpillar engines, it has the...
