Rerust-proofing instructions

Uncrate the engine.

Warm up the K-17 rust preventer to between -10 and 60° С and fill the engine sump therewith level with the filling neck and also fill the fuel injection pump housing and the governor with the same preventer level with the filling holes.

Connect the engine fuel system to a tank containing the K-17 rust preventer warmed up to between 40 and 60° С and fill the system with the rust preventer, using the handpriming pump.

Set the fuel injection pump rack into the position of maximum delivery and crank over the engine for a period between 3 and 5 min. at a rale of 15 to 30 rpm.

Fill the space working wherein are the fuel injection pump springs with the K-17 rust preventer, using a tube or through the drain hole; drain the rust preventer.

Fill the water pumps with the K-17 rust preventer and drain the pumps.… READ THE REST

Uncrating instructions

Remove file cover from the box and check all the items for presence according to the Packing List.

Remove all items of the standard equipment from the shipping box (boxes with spares, tools etc.).

Remove the side walls of the box and the cover (if one was provided for) and check the engine for the condition of the rustpreventing coaling. Sandpaper and repaint the places which have corroded.

Unbolt the engine from the bottom of the box.

Lift the engine jerkless and with care.… READ THE REST

Shipping instructions

The engine can be shipped being rust-proofed and strongly crated complete with all its standard equipment by rail, ship and road.

The crated engine must be handled in the course of shipping with care, avoiding jolts and observing all the precautionary signs stencilled on the box such as “This Side Up”, “Do Not Tilt”, etc.

If a need arises to ship the engine after a period in service, proceed as follows:

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
  • rust-proof and crate the engine, spares, tools and fixtures;
  • use for crating the engine a wooden box which safeguards the engine against the ingress of water being lined at the bottom, sides and top with watertight paper (parched paper, tar paper, roof-sheeting material); provide timber blocks at the bottom of the box whereon the engine lugs can rest so that the sump is clear of the bottom;
  • bolt the engine to the bottom of the box in a secure way;
  • put the storage battery, the envelope containing the technical papers and the box with the spares, tools and fixtures into the box placed wherein is the engine and secure these additional items in place by braces so as to prevent them from displacement in handling the crated engine;
  • put the storage battery on the bottom of the box and never place any other item on top of the storage battery;
  • for better protection against the ingress of moisture, put the engine into a plastic film bag;
  • close the box with the cover and apply a seal thereto;
  • stencil the addresses and all those precautionary signs referred to above: the stencils must he weatherproof and nonabrading;
  • if the engine is shipped by sea, it must be crated into an extra strong box.

Attending to the diesel engine during down periods

When the engine is shut down for a period not longer than 10 days, keep the engine in clean condition and always ready for starting.

If the down period is longer that 10 days but not over 3 months, drain the cooling system of water; wipe the engine clean of sludge; change the oil in the sump, fuel injection pump housing and governor; slacken the generator belt tension; pour some 50 to 60 g of dehydrated crankcase oil into each of the cylinders and crank over the engine through a few revolutions; pour another 50 to 60 g of dehydrated oil into each cylinder after the cranking; lubricate the valve stems and all the outside nonpainted metal parts of the engine.

Preparatory to starting the engine after a down period, remove the coat of lubricant from the outside surfaces of the engine, crank over same by hand a few times and adjust the generator drive belt for tension.… READ THE REST


Materials used for rust-proofing

The materials used in the course of preparing for rust-proofing and for the rust-proofing proper of the engine, spares, tools and fixtures are as follows:

  • grade K-17 rust preventer to GOST 10877—64;
  • rust preventers of foreign make such as Shell Ensis Oil 210, 401, 402; Ensis Engine Oil 30 (Great Britain);
  • grade Б-70 aircraft benzine to GOST 1012—72;
  • grade БП5 and БП6 paraffined paper to GOST 9569—65;
  • grade A subparchment paper to GOST 1760—68;
  • wiping cloths;
  • ground talc to GOST 379—69;
  • white spirit to GOST 3134—52;
  • natural fibre cord to GOST 17308—71;
  • cotton gloves to GOST 5007—63.

Thoroughly stir the K-17 rust preventer for 3 to 5 min. before applying same, using a wooden stirrer. Warm up the rust preventer to anywhere up to 40° С if its temperature is under 15° C. Apply the rust preventer with a brush, pad or by dipping, and allow surplus preventer to drip.… READ THE REST

Removing rust-preventing coating

The procedure of removing the coal of rust preventer from the engine which is to be installed and put into service is as follows:

  • Uncrate the engine.
  • Remove the blanking off plates and plugs from the engine and its auxiliaries and unwrap the wrapped parts.
  • Remove the coal of rust preventer from the outside surface of the engine, using fuel oil-soaked cloths; wash the wire gauzes of the air cleaners with Fuel oil.
  • Install the engine and prepare it for operation.
  • Crank over the engine through 2 or 3 revolutions by hand; remove the heater plugs to overcome the resistance due to compression.
  • Hand-prime the fuel system.
  • Start the engine and warm it up so that the temperature of the oil in the sump is 55 °С, maintaining a speed between 900 and 1500 rps. Stop the engine.
  • On finishing with the above operations, the engine is regarded ready for service.
