ACCEPTANCE TESTING AND MAINTENANCE OF DIESEL ENGINES. MAINTENANCE OF FUEL INJECTOR OF DIESEL ENGINES
This report has been drawn up on the basis of the comparison of experience gained by eight administrations. It summarises the general ideas which these administrations hold and lists the various types of defects most frequently encountered, their causes and usual development, and also the checking and testing methods most usually adopted. It also proposes the limits of defects which can be accepted in the homologation tests and provides a list of terms in five languages. The Working Party has already prepared four reports on the maintenance of diesel engines. These cover: crankshafts (Report No. 12); pistons, gudgeon pins, piston rings and cylinder liners (Report No. 14); means of counteracting corrosion in the cooling circuits (Report No. 16); cylinder heads, valves and cylinder head accessories (report No. 18).
