 VALVE GUIDE SEALS ON 88-92 3.6L ENG.
                                          Valve Guide Seals On
                               1988-92 3.6L DOHC Jaguar Engines

The AERA Technical Committee advises members of the following information concerning valve stem guide seals on 1988-92 3.5L DOHC engines. Originally, the cylinder head of this engine used a valve stem seal only on the twelve intake valves. Now, since engine number 163522 both intake and exhaust valves use valve seals.

It is Jaguars recommendation that anytime a cylinder head is remanufactured or serviced, valve stem seals be installed on all 24 valves. Jaguar offers a cylinder head gasket kit Part #JLM11088, which contains twenty-four valve stem seals. AERA is unaware of an aftermarket supplier for the valve stem seals and head gasket.

                                                                     The AERA Technical Committee
 CAMSHAFT IDENTIFICATION & LOCATION
                                       Camshaft Identification & Location For
                                         1988-92 Jaguar 3.6L DOHC Engines

The AERA Technical Committee offers the following information regarding camshaft identification and location on 1988-92 Jaguar 3.6L DOHC engines. This engine design incorporates 24 valves and uses two unique camshafts to actuate the valve train. Those camshafts may appear to be identical at first glance, as there are many similarities, but their location in the head is specific.

Stamped numbers are used to identify each camshaft: the intake cam is #C37583 and the exhaust cam is  #C37582. If those numbers are unreadable, an alternative method of identifying may be used for cam installation.

Each cam has a timing V notch cut into the cam thrust ring; it should be at the 12 o?clock position during cam timing. When correctly installed in the cylinder head, the first cam lobe after the cam thrust ring of each cam will face each other. Those first lobes will also be pointed toward the spark plug threaded hole.  

                                                                     The AERA Technical Committee
 NEW CYLINDER LINER O-RINGS
                                      New Cylinder Liner O-Ring Seals On
                                      Cummins NH/NT 6 Cylinder Engines

Cummins Engine Company has released new O-ring seals for the cylinder liners in NH/NT 6 cylinder engines.  The new seals are made of an EP material and have a smaller diameter cross-section.

The new seal replaces both the old center seal #3008998 and the old lower seal #183049.  The new seal carries Cummins part #3032874 and is black in color with one blue dot.

The new O-ring seals are not to be intermixed with the former seals on the same liner.  Cylinder liner deformation will result.  You can use the former seals and new seals in the same engine as long as they are used in the correct combinations on each liner.  The illustration below shows the correct combinations.

                                                                       The AERA Technical Committee
 OIL IN COOLANT
                                               Oil in Cooling System on
                                         VW 1.5L & 1.6L Diesel Engines

AERA members have reported instances of engine oil in the cooling system on VW 1.5L diesel engines.  According to AERA sources, the problem is related to a crack in the cylinder head bolt hole located near the oil gallery feeding the cylinder head.

The oil feed gallery in the block is located on one side of the center head bolt hole and a coolant jacket is on the opposite side of the bolt hole.  Pressurized engine oil is diverted through a slot in the head gasket and is feed up the side of the head bolt to the cylinder head.  The oil also follows the bolt back down to the bottom of the bolt hole.  Should the crack in the head bolt hole extend to the coolant jacket, oil can mix with engine coolant.

This problem is generally found on engines equipped with 11mm head bolt holes.  Later design engines utilize 12mm head bolts and do not exhibit this defect.  At the time of this writing no successful repair procedure is available.

                                                                       The AERA Technical Committee
 CYLINDER HEAD SPECS
                                        Cylinder Head Specifications on
                                              Case 207 Diesel Engines

The following cylinder head specifications should be considered when remanufacturing Case Model 207 diesel engine cylinder heads.

The minimum cylinder head thickness has been established at 3.968 with a new head measuring 4.000 +/- .005.  Heads are measured from the deck surface to the rocker cover rail.

Valve recession should be checked and adjusted if necessary to a maximum recession of .015, below the deck surface, for both intake and exhaust valves.  Valves on new cylinder heads are generally flush with a +/- .005 tolerance.

                                                                       The AERA Technical Committee
 MAIN BEARING SADDLE REPAIR KITS
                                         Main Bearing Saddle Repair Kits

The Cummins Engine Company has made main bearing saddle repair kits available for several engines.  These kits can be used to salvage cylinder blocks when a main bearing has spun and the main bearing saddle has been damaged.

Each kit contains an 1/8 drill bit, two hold down bolts (one for the lock ring and one for the other side of the saddle), a quantity of rivets and the appropriate number of repair sleeves.  Semi-finished or good used main bearing caps are also needed to complete the repair.

A main bearing saddle can be successfully repaired by following this procedure.
                                                                                                                            Remove the main bearing cap from the saddle to be repaired.  Using the appropriate align bore tooling remove .050 of material out of the saddle.  This will enlarge the main bearing bore by .100.

Clean the saddle and lock tang area.  Install the repair sleeve and align the lock tang slot of the sleeve with the one in the block.

From the repair kit, install the washer marked L on the lock tang side of the saddle.  Install the second washer on the opposite side.  Install the hold down screws and torque to 20 lbs.ft. (Figure 1).

Mount the 1/8 drill bit in a right angle drill, so that the drill extends 1/4 beyond the chuck jaws.

Using the 4 holes in the repair sleeve as a guide, drill through each of the holes into the saddle.  The proper hole depth is achieved when the chuck jaws contact the repair sleeve.

Clean the 4 holes and install the supplied rivets (Figure 2).  Peen the rivets until they are flush with the repair sleeve.

Remove the temporary hold down bolts and trim the ends of the repair sleeve so they are flush with the main bearing saddle.

Clean the main bearing bolt holes and install a good used or semi-finished main bearing cap.  Torque the main bearing bolts to specifications.

Using the appropriate align boring tools, refinish the main bearing housing bore to specifications.  Approximately .050 of material should be removed from the repair sleeve.
                                                                             
Main bearing bore repair kits or sleeves may also be available from several aftermarket sources.

 OVERHEATING OF ENGINES WITH ELECTRIC COOLING FANS
                          Overheating Of Engines With Electric Cooling Fans

Ever since gasoline prices have shot up, vehicle manufacturers have downsized cars and their engines.  One of the best ways of making a car smaller is to turn the engine sideways under the hood.  This has instituted the use of one or more electric cooling fans to move air through the radiator.  Diagnosing overheating conditions on engines with electric cooling fans requires a few extra steps to ensure that the electrical control system for the fan is operating properly.

o    Perform all of the tests associated with normal
     installations, for example:  check antifreeze level,
     thermostat, water pump and hoses.

o    Check that the cooling fan is moving air through the
     radiator.  With the fan turned on air should never blow out
     through the front of the vehicle.  If there is more than one
     fan, be sure to check both.  It's possible for the
     electrical leads to be reversed during installation causing
     the fan to move air in the opposite direction.

o    If the vehicle is equipped with two fans, be sure that both
     of them work.  If the vehicle is equipped with air
     conditioning, one of the fans may only operate when the air
     conditioning is on.  Consult the service manual if you are
     not sure.

o    Fans are controlled by a temperature sending unit.  Check a
     suspected faulty sensor by bridging the two connections.  If
     the fan comes on, then the sensor is at fault.

o    Verify that the fan comes on at the temperature listed in
     the service manual.  Replace the sensor if the proper
     temperatures are not maintained.
