AERA Technical Bulletins – October 28, 2022

 

 

Cylinder Head Oiling Caution on 2007-2010 Mini Cooper 1.6L N14 Engines

 

The AERA Technical Committee offers the following information regarding a cylinder head oiling caution on 2007-2010 Mini Cooper 1.6L N14 engines. This caution should be considered anytime a DTC has been set or the cylinder head has been disassembled.

 

The proper oiling of the front of the cylinder head relies on a complete seal between all reported components. It’s been reported the oil gallery on both front cam caps may leak after time of numerous engine cycles or overheating. The sealing area of the head and the top assembly has minimal clamping load (7.4 FT/LBS 10 Nm) and may not seal 100% the pressurized oil. 

 

 

Valve Identification on 2006-2020 John Deere 6090, 9.0L Diesel Engines

 

The AERA Technical Committee offers the following information on valve identification for 2006-2020 John Deere 6090, 9.0L diesel engines. This information should be referenced anytime the cylinder head is being assembled or valve lash is being adjusted. 

 

The engine valves for these engines both carry the same dimensions with a head diameter of 1.570-1.580″ (39.870-40.130 MM). On the valve head, new exhaust valves are identified with a white mark in a small cast depression. Intake valves are identified with a blue mark in a larger cast depression as shown below. The intake valves are also magnetic while the exhaust valves are not. The intake valves should also be numbered R520223, and the exhaust valves should be numbered R520224.

 

 

FA20 Engine

 

Naturally aspirated, flat four engine for Subaru and Toyota sports cars

By Dave Hagen

 

At the beginning of 2012, the joint Subaru and Toyota model was put into production. You know it as Subaru BRZ, Toyota 86 or Scion FR-S. This new, naturally aspirated, flat four FA20 engine was developed specially for these sports cars. It was built based on a FB20 cylinder block, modified into square bore/stroke ratio. The diameter of its cylinders and piston stroke is 86mm. Unlike the usual FB20, this motor uses new pistons, a new crankshaft, and the compression ratio was increased to 12.5:1.

 

FA20 engines use new heads with a direct injection system of the Toyota D4S, a variable valve timing system AVCS that is used on both intake and exhaust camshafts. Also, 4-2-1 headers are installed on this motor.

Be aware: slippery roads!

Recently, many parts of South Africa experienced the first rain for summer. During the first rainfall of the season, the roads will be more hazardous as the oil and grease, collected on the roads during the dry season, will make the roads more slippery than what they are in the middle of rainy season.

AERA Technical Bulletins – October 6, 2022

 

 

Camshaft Bearings for 2014-2018 GM Gen 5 LT1, LT4, L86, L83 Engines

 

The AERA Technical Committee offers the following information on the camshaft bearings for 2014-2018 GM LT1, LT4, L86, L83 Gen 5 engines. Beginning in 2014 these engines saw a design change to one of the camshaft bearings for these popular engines.

 

The bearing set shown in Figure 1 shows the unique bearing with a cut-out (middle of photo) portion in it. Obtaining the correct replacement bearings has been difficult and only recently has this bearing set been available with Part #CHP-26-T. 

 

 

Valve Spring Retainer and Key Caution for 2002-2011 Honda/Acura 2.0L Engines

 

The AERA Technical Committee offers the following information regarding a valve spring retainer and key caution for 2002-2011 Honda/Acura 2.0L engines. This caution should be referenced anytime the cylinder head is being disassembled.

 

During manufacturing of these engines for the 2004 model year, a change was made to the valve spring retainer and cotter keys. The revised components are not compatible with the earlier designs. Engine failure may result if any components are mixed as a valve may drop into the cylinder. 

 

 

 

12 Tips for Starting Diesel Engines in the Cold

 

By Dave Hagen with the Capital Reman Tech Team

 

“Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don’t forget your booties ’cause it’s cooooold out there today… It’s coooold out there every day. What is this, Miami Beach?”

— from the movie, Groundhog Day

 

That’s right folks, winter is upon us once again here in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. With a so called “polar vortex” on its way tomorrow, we here at Capital Reman thought it would be appropriate to give you some info on “cold diesel starts” read on for some tips on how to start a diesel engine on a cold day.

 

1. Glow Plugs and Block Heaters: The use of glow plugs or block heaters will start the vast majority of diesel engines on a cold day. Glow plugs work by heating the internal combustion chamber so that conditions are suitable for compression and ultimately ignition.
