Reconditioning of cylinder heads for Caterpillar 170 engines, repair of Deutz-Mwm engine overhaul, Jenbacher and Guascor engines

March 13, 2024by Analía

At RS Motor, we take pride in sharing one of the latest projects from our engine repair workshop. This week, we have completed a new reconditioning project for Deutz-Mwm engine overhaul, Jenbacher, and Guascor cogeneration engine cylinder heads. Specifically, we have worked on Caterpillar engine cylinder heads, more specifically the CAT CG 170 engine model, which cylinder heads are also compatible with MWM TCG 2020 V12, V16, and V20 engines.

Cylinder heads play a crucial role in the functioning of an engine. They are responsible for sealing and controlling the flow of gases in the combustion chamber, ensuring optimal efficiency and performance. That is why maintaining the cylinder heads in good condition is crucial to ensure the proper functioning of the engine and prevent potential breakdowns that could impact plant’s productivity.
The wear of the moving components of the cylinder heads is common over operating hours. This wear considerably compromises the performance of the engine and even endangers its integrity. Therefore, proper reconditioning of these elements is of vital importance in engine maintenance.

At RS Motor, we carry out rigorous reconditioning processes to ensure that the cylinder heads, in this case for Caterpillar engines, are in the best possible condition. Our experienced team of professionals follows these steps to restore the cylinder heads to their optimal state:

  • Complete disassembly: We perform a meticulous disassembly of the cylinder heads, documenting the process and marking the components for later reassembly.
  • Ultrasonic cleaning of the head: We utilize ultrasonic cleaning technology to eliminate any dirt, residues, or deposits accumulated in the cylinder head.
  • 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 yellow colour of Caterpillar engines.
