Providing safety through mechanical excellence

Introduction

In the event of engine failure, it is necessary to clean the oil galleries of an engine to
ensure foreign particles and engine failure debris is not present upon engine rebuild as
this could have catastrophic consequences.

Oil Flow Direction Explanation

Looking at Figure 1 the engine oil is lifted through the oil pump strainer and is then sent to
the filter housing where it travels through the oil filters before passing through the oil
cooler.

From the oil cooler the oil then flows through the main crankcase oil gallery where there
are several take offs.

The first take off is the oil feed to the Geislinger coupling and A1 & B1 crank pin journal.
This enters the crankshaft at the drive end and flows into the Geislinger damper coupling
and flows in the direction of the free end to cylinders A1 & B1, these are first to receive oil
on the crankshaft with cylinder A4 & B4 last to receive engine oil. The oil from the
crankshaft drains directly into the sump where the above process starts again.

The next take off from the main oil gallery is the turbo charger and fuel pump oil feed,
which then feed the turbos and fuel pump with engine oil and drain back directly into the
sump.

Following on from this, the next take offs are the piston cooling jets and camshaft and
rocker gear oil ways and remaining 5 main bearings, all returning directly to the sump.

Each big end bearing is fed oil from the main bearing oil feed as in fig 2, this shows an
example of the oil flow.

Cleaning Method

With the above description and the engine damage being localised to the A2 & B2
crankshaft journals, it is highly doubtful that material debris from the failure has been
transferred to the rest of the engine, with the only points of transfer being the oil pump
and filter assembly with debris unable to pass through the filters.

With the engine dismantled it is not possible to rig up an external pump and filter system
to flush through the oil ways.

The oil filter assembly and cooler are to be returned to Bartech for ultrasonic cleaning.

A new oil pump, crankshaft, 2x connecting rods and all new main and big end bearings
are to be fitted this will drastically reduce the amount of cleaning required to be
undertaken on the platform.

Tooling Requirements:

Brake & Clutch Cleaner x5 litres

Full PPE must be worn to include gloves and full-face mask to protect face, eyes and
breathing.

Fig 3 – Paraffin Spray Gun

Compressed air should be blown through the rocker gear oil feed tubes (Fig 4), it is
recommended brake and clutch cleaner is not used here so as not to wash the camshaft
bearings completely of oil.

It is recommended the oil gallery plug on the drive end is removed (item 4 on Fig 5).

The piston cooling oil jets should then be removed (item 10 Fig 5)

The oil cooler to main oil gallery (highlighted red in Fig 5) should be blocked, this can be
done by inserting cotton rag into the hole.

The spray gun should be filled with brake & clutch cleaner and inserted into the oil gallery
via the hole from which the blanking plug was removed (Item 4, Fig 5).

White cotton rag should be laid underneath the engine block on top of oil spill matting to
collect dirt and debris and fluid.

Fig 5 – Engine block

Brake and clutch cleaner should then be sprayed up through the piston cooling jet feeds
and the main bearing feeds,

Finally, brake and clutch fluid should be sprayed once more through the main oil gallery
plug hole and then blown dry using compressed air.

Once the engine is rebuilt, we recommend running the engine on idle for 15 minutes and
then change the engine oil and filters, this will ensure a totally clean engine.
