Pulled the sleeves out of a 574 diesel due to sleeves leaking water in oil and found electrolisis had eaten part of the upper landing of the oring groove. Is this a common problem on these engines? Seems as if these engines are harder to get parts for :angry: TIA

Not sure how often it happens but I have heard of it before. Water filters are a cheap investment

Can't say that we ran into that on our 310 when we overhauled it. The orings were getting bad, but the blowby & oil pressure was the main reason it got torn apart.

Can't say I've ever heard alot of noise about that on the Germans around here, and their is alot of them. Got a 756 with a 310 on the farm approaching 9000 hrs and it hasn't been opened up yet :blink: :blink: Darn girl runs good.............Had injectors and the pump redone, but other than that, it just keeps going. I wish the D360's in the two 766's gave as good of service.

Heard about parts issues, mainly on the D358 in the 826's though...........Don't know how true it is though.

I am currently in the middle of a D-179 with indifinite number of hours.
It's tear down was due to low oil pressure and blowby. Thing ran very well the day I tore it down!
Internal sealing was good with no fluid mixing.
Sleeves O-rings were sealing and there was no serious corresion.
Every part I have required was on the shelf someplace.
Everything I have looked for at CaseIH was available in 2 days.
Biggest problem I had was locating a machine shop to align hone the new cam bearings.
AND locating reliable service manual reference.
It is ready to be started as sone as I sort out injection pump timing.
