Crankcase Explosion

Written by Thomas Yoon

Continued from page 1

Allrepparttar sliding parts can become a hotspot whenever there is insufficient lubrication to reducerepparttar 147255 friction, probably during starting ofrepparttar 147256 engine or any abnormal interruption inrepparttar 147257 force lubrication oil system.

Next,repparttar 147258 use of fuel oil inrepparttar 147259 engine. Dripping fuel injectors will result in incomplete combustion ofrepparttar 147260 fuel aboverepparttar 147261 piston top. Ifrepparttar 147262 dripping is serious,repparttar 147263 liquid fuel can find their way throughrepparttar 147264 piston rings aided byrepparttar 147265 high pressure ofrepparttar 147266 combustion process to eventually find its way intorepparttar 147267 crankcase. For trunk type engines, this is a direct path torepparttar 147268 crankcase. It can become a source of low flash point fuel when mixed withrepparttar 147269 lubricating oil!

For dripping fuel injectors, it is common to find unburnt carbon that will causerepparttar 147270 piston rings to stick within their grooves, thus destroyingrepparttar 147271 sealing function ofrepparttar 147272 piston rings. This will not only causerepparttar 147273 fuel to drip through, but can also cause fire fromrepparttar 147274 combustion space to blow past throughrepparttar 147275 gaps betweenrepparttar 147276 piston rings andrepparttar 147277 cylinder bore. This can be a source of heat!

There are other conditions favorable to cause an explosion, for examplerepparttar 147278 quality ofrepparttar 147279 oil andrepparttar 147280 effects of oxidation after a long period of use,repparttar 147281 generation of oil mist due to agitation of repparttar 147282 oil spray,repparttar 147283 property ofrepparttar 147284 oil, etc.

It is impossible to guarantee that any engine will operate forrepparttar 147285 whole of its life without, somewhere, at some time, a hot spot appearing. Therefore it is essential that should a hot spot occur and if it goes undetected, an explosion will not result.

That could berepparttar 147286 subject of another article... Meanwhile procuring hard-to-find tools is just as important for making engine adjustments.
