Caterpillar 3516 Cylinder Heads – Case Study


Caterpillar 3516 cylinder heads, part number 10R2003


North Sea Oil Producer


As part of a top end overhaul on the Caterpillar 3516,exchange cylinder heads were purchased from a Caterpillar agent. On receipt of the heads, a test certificate was requested to confirm they had been fully inspected and hydrostatically tested. The agent explained this is not something that was done for each head, but they were covered under warranty if anything was wrong. Bartech did not want to wait until the cylinder heads were fitted to find this out, so instead instigated our own inspection procedures.


All cylinder heads were fully inspected, measuring valve depths and carrying out hydrostatic testing to ensure there were no cracks.


All cylinder heads were supplied in confidence with full test certification. This helped keep the engine overhaul on schedule.
