Every engine rebuild begins with an engine performance problem. For remanufacturers, determining the cause of the failure can go a long way toward solidifying customer relationships and preventing future performance issues. As previously announced, the 2009 BIG R Show will have an emphasis on diesel engine remanufacturing. To that end, APRA’s Heavy Duty Remanufacturing Group (HDRG) has arranged for several industry experts to discuss how and why engine failures occur and how to prevent them. All are industry veterans who have analyzed engine related problems and will be able to give attendees real life examples of failures and their causes and solutions.
Bob Gaylen of TAWAS, Inc. in Noblesville, Indiana, will chair the seminar. His company is involved in analyzing failures and recommending solutions to many OEM’s and large users of diesel engines. He also is an expert on the vehicle electrical systems and how that system interfaces with the mechanical systems.
Steve Scott, Technical Service Manager for IPD, which is a leading supplier of CAT engine parts to the independent channels, will also be on hand to share his extensive experience with real world engine problems. IPD will be exhibiting in the Heavy Duty Engine Section of the BIG R Show, which is being co-sponsored by ENGINE BUILDER magazine.
Arrangements are being made for additional speakers to join Bob and Scott who will discuss a variety of topics of interest to the HD Engine Rebuilder/Distributor from the failure analysis of engine parts to fuel systems and oil analysis.
