The purpose of this paper is to describe the results obtained during some attempts to gain extended engine life by means of warning and information systems. Data will be presented on cylinder head mortality rates since the introduction of the initial rudimentary alarm system. Experience gained from problems encountered with the elementary systems has led to an examination of the purposes and limitations of monitoring systems as applied to earthmoving equipment. This in turn has led to the development of a second-generation system which, it is hoped, will overcome some of the difficiencies of the elementary system without introducing major problems of its own. /GMRL/
