Seized turbocharger back on-line

Seized turbocharger back on-line

If you are reliant on “heritage” engine models, or those simply not made anymore, then chances are you will have experienced supply problems for ongoing maintenance or repairs. Sourcing of spares can usually be overcome with a bit of digging, but when it comes to major assemblies, it can be a lot more complicated, not to mention expensive! One of our clients found themselves in that position recently with two Sulzer LAG46 Turbochargers that had...

Oval Con-Rod Correction – How it’s done

Oval Con-Rod Correction – How it’s done

If you recall, last week we shared the story of how we saved a client around £25,000 by machining their connecting rods, rather than replacing them.

So, rather than write you a long explanation, I jumped in front of a camera to SHOW you how your connecting rods can be machined.       I don’t get in front of the camera that often, but I’m thinking I...

Major Engine Overhaul? – Machine the Big Ends

Major Engine Overhaul? – Machine the Big Ends

Have you been involved with a major engine overhaul? It’s not enough to just change the bearings because if the big ends have worn and are now oval, you can have some major failures. If the big ends are found to be outside the engine manufacturers’ wear limits, the first option is to replace the rod, but contrary to what a lot of people think, that isn’t always the best route for the owner. We recently overhauled a 6-cylinder Wartsila...

Engine Timing

Engine Timing

Last week, we took a call from a client. He was frustrated that some double skin fuel pipes we’d supplied didn’t fit his Dorman engine. We were pretty surprised, as we’d made pipes for them in the past, and they’d worked fine. So right from the outset we felt there was more to this than met the eyes. And as it turned out, it wasn’t anything to do with the pipes. Despite the pipes fitting our jig perfectly (below) before being sent...

Paxman Engine Flywheel Modification

Paxman Engine Flywheel Modification

What speed do your engines run at? 1500 RPM, 1800 RPM, or more? Whatever speed it is, the potential damage or injury caused by something coming off the engine is huge.   Unfortunately, we’ve seen first-hand the damage caused by the starter ring coming apart and flying off the flywheel.   And I can tell you that it certainly wasn’t pretty!!   As you’d expect, following the incident, the client highlighted it as “major” and brought...
