Reconditioning of Guascor FGLD 240 engine cylinder heads

May 13, 2024by Analía

This week we show you another of the works carried out in the RS Motor workshop. It’s a new cylinder head reconditioning with spare parts for Guascor engines as part of cogeneration engine maintenance service. In this case, the cylinder heads come from a Guascor FGLD 240 engine.


At RS Motor, we perform thousands of cylinder head reconditionings every year. These components play a crucial role in the engine’s operation and, as such, are prone to wear. For this reason, their maintenance is a common task and is integrated into all medium and large-scale preventive maintenance plans.
The cylinder head reconditioning process is carried out according to the recommendations of the manufacturer itself, always using spare parts for Guascor engines, Deutz MWM, and Jenbacher genuine or original OEM parts in each case. This ensures the reliability of the work performed, thereby increasing our clients’ plant productivity and minimizing the risk of unplanned shutdowns due to breakdowns or component failures.


The steps carried out for cylinder head reconditioning are as follows:

• Complete disassembly: We meticulously disassemble the cylinder heads, documenting the process and marking the components for later reassembly.
• Ultrasonic cleaning of the housing: We use ultrasonic cleaning technology to remove any dirt, residues, or deposits accumulated in the cylinder head housing. Subsequently, a manual cleaning is performed to ensure a good outcome of this process.
Inspection and crack control: We carefully inspect all surfaces of the cylinder heads to detect any cracks or structural damage. Ensuring that the cylinder heads are free of imperfections guarantees the absence of leaks and achieves optimal performance.
• Installation of new valve guides: We replace worn valve guides with new ones, ensuring a precise fit.
• Replacement of valves and seats: We install new intake and exhaust valves, as well as their respective seats, as these are the components that experience the most wear during engine operation. We use genuine and/or original OEM parts for the replacement.
• Installation of a new sleeve: We fit a new sleeve to the cylinder heads.
• Replacement of gaskets and O-rings: We utilize high-quality gaskets and O-rings to ensure optimal sealing and prevent leaks in the cylinder heads.
• Final hydraulic testing: We conduct a comprehensive hydraulic test to verify that the cylinder heads maintain proper sealing and do not leak.
• Priming and painting: We apply a high-resistance primer and paint layer to protect the cylinder heads, ensuring their durability and maintaining their original orange colour of Guascor engines.
