Detroit 16V71 Oval Conn Rod Correction

As you know, we believe that carrying out your own inspections is vital.

Just as vital, is reducing your dependence on your incoming spares matching up with the new specifications, even if you order them from the OEM.

This week, we’ve been dealing with another situation that cements this fact, although this time, we’ve been able to bring the parts back into specification with the backing of Bureau Veritas.

Whilst our client’s OEM has quarantined all their stock of connecting rods, and they’ve been unable to commit to resupplying them, we’ve been able to get the engine overhaul back on schedule by using our reworking capabilities and using our specialist engine knowledge.

We’ve put together a short clip that shows you how we reduced the engine overhaul schedule by over two months, see below

The chances are that if these connecting rods had been fitted without being fully inspected, the freshly overhauled engine would have been written off, causing some serious expense for our client.

Regardless of the scope of work, if you’ve got people working on your engines, we suggest you insist on measurement sheets and test sheets to reduce your risk of significant downtime and cost.

If you need any advice or help with your diesel engines, give us a call on 01206 791552, or drop us an email to info@bartechmarine.com.
