Flywheel/Flexplate Bolt Cautions for 2005-2022 Toyota 2.7L Engines

 

The AERA Technical Committee offers the following information concerning the flywheel/flexplate bolts on 2005-2022 Toyota 2.7L truck engines. This information applies to the engine models 3RZFE and 2TRFE only.

 

These engines are very similar to each other but differ in ways that should be considered during engine assembly. Refer to the chart below for flywheel/flexplate bolt installation.

NOTE: The bolts for the flywheel of the 3RZFE engine are a one-time use and require replacement anytime they’re removed. Bolts for flexplates may be reused if undamaged.

 

 

 

Thicker Head Gasket Options for 2009-2016 Mini Cooper 1.6L N18 Engines

 

The AERA Technical Department offers the following information regarding an additional thickness head gasket for 2009-2016 Mini Cooper 1.6L N18 engines. This information should be considered any time the cylinder head is removed from above subject engines.

 

Before removing the cylinder head, loosen and re-torque each head bolt to ensure thread strength and integrity. There have been many instances of stripped head bolt hole threads in these aluminum cylinder blocks. Determining a complete repair during teardown is well advised rather than finding out later during assembly procedures.

 

 

 

Tubular Header Tech

 

By Mike Mavrigian

 

There’s more to selecting exhaust headers than simply finding a set of tubes that bolt up to the cylinder heads and that clear restrictions in the engine bay. Understanding materials, the role

of primary tube diameters, lengths and designs is critical in selecting the best application, especially in the pursuit of extracting maximum horsepower and torque.

 

PRIMARY TUBE SIZE AND LENGTH

Given the same input pressure, a smaller diameter tube will create higher pressure, while a larger tube will result in lower pressure output. Depending on other factors such as compression ratio and cylinder head design, smaller diameter primary tubes promote low-end torque, but if too small for the application this can result in an increase in backpressure. Larger diameter primaries lend themselves provide not only corrosion prevention thermal control as to top-end power, but if too large, insufficient back-pressure will result in a loss of power, especially at bottom-end and midrange operation.

Small Diesel Engine Opportunities

 

Steve and Chuck interview Paul Kelly from Maxiforce Engine Parts, who supplies diesel engine parts, about the opportunities that are out there for machine shops in the small-bore diesel engine market. Paul enlightens everyone about how one engine can be used in several different pieces of equipment from one manufacturer. Also, this month’s history segment pertains to the Indianapolis 500 and how one of our longtime associate members participated in the Indianapolis 500 in the early years.

 

 

 

AERA Tech & Skills Conferences

 

Everyone in business owes it to themselves and their business to gain knowledge and network with other people within the same industry.

SYNOPSIS

 

In December 2021, the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy (DMRE) released the Gas Master Plan Basecase Report for public comment and input.

 

Its intention was to establish baseline information to develop a Gas Master Plan roadmap for the natural gas sector in South Africa, described by DMRE Minister Gwede Mantashe as a “gamechanger” for South Africa.

 

Once developed, the Gas Master Plan is intended to serve as a policy instrument and roadmap for strategic, political and institutional decisions, which will guide industry investment, planning and coordinated implementation.

 

Further work in this area has been done in a report on “The Role of Gas in South Africa’s Path to Net-Zero” by Boston Consulting Group (BCG). The report, released in February 2022, assesses pathways for South Africa to decarbonise by 2050, and the potential role of gas in South Africa’s transition.

 

Work is also underway by African International Advisors (AIA) in association with SADC, DBSA and IDC for the development of a Regional Gas Masterplan to coordinate and integrate the planning of regional gas supply initiatives among African and SADC member countries.

 

South Africa and the region also need to be cognizant of international gas developments and issues arising in respect of climate change, methane leakage, and gas market price and supply upheavals in Europe resulting from Putin’s war in Ukraine.

 

This webinar will review all of the above in order to provide a better understanding of the issues and arguments for and against natural gas as a transitionary fuel in Southern Africa.

Tanzania Bureau of Standards visit SABS

The South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) hosted the Tanzanian Bureau of Standards (TSB). After an exploratory site visit the last few days at the National Metrology Institute of South Africa (NMISA), they joined the SABS Team for robust discussions around Standards Development and African Trade Solutions.

SABS Team: Lead Administrator: Jodi Scholtz, Executive Standards: Dr Sadhvir Bissoon, Richard Sadiki, Sindi Khoza, Peter Solly, Kholeka Nefadi and Thabo Sepuru.

TSB Team: Rehema Kitambi, Athuman Kisumo, Judica Jared Mushi, and Stella Mrosso.

 

ARSO Mutual Recognition Championship Initiative

The SABS Management team, headed by Jodi Scholtz, accompanied by Dr Sadhvir Bissoon and Katima Temba, met with the ARSO SG: Hermogene Nsengimana, to discuss their strategic plan and critical projects. #onemarketonestandard

ARSO Central Secretariat officially submitted South Africa through SABS as a member of the African Organisation for Standardisation – ARSO MRAs Champions Initiative, joining hands with the current members, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda and Zimbabwe.

Mutual recognition of accreditation and certification systems will facilitate access to the single African Market and provide the technical underpinning of the trade barriers. It will give cross-border stakeholders confidence and acceptance of accredited test data and certified results, facilitating free movements and cost-cutting of goods and services while promoting intra-African trade and realising the free-trade goal of ‘tested, inspected or certified once and accepted everywhere, within the African single market.

SG also shared information about ARSO’s ACAP (African Conformity Assessment Program), identifying schemes relevant to the African continent. A highlight was where South Africa could increase her contribution to the technical committees! When Africa UNITES, we build a more robust and safer environment for our people!

Advanced Driver Steering Systems

SANS 20079 intends to establish uniform provisions for the layout and performance of steering systems fitted to vehicles used on the road. Traditionally the primary requirement has been that the central steering system contains a positive mechanical link between the steering control, usually the steering wheel, and the road wheels to determine the vehicle’s path. The automatic link, if amply dimensioned, has been regarded as not being liable to failure.

South Africa can significantly improve water and energy efficiency by aligning its tap labelling programme with international standards, a new study by the South African National Energy Development Institute (Sanedi) and non-governmental organisation Clasp shows.

The ‘In-depth assessment of water efficiency opportunities in South Africa’ study, released ahead of National Water Week from March 20 to 26, found that standards for taps and showerheads could contribute to mitigating the country’s water and energy crises by reducing the use of water and electricity needed to heat some of that water.

  1. Breaking the Bias:  Women Working in Tech

 

“While we are making progress, the statistics of women in technology and engineering are far from even closing the gap. Only about 25% of jobs in technology are far from even closing the gap. Only about 25% of jobs in technology are held by women in 2021.”

  1. How To Prevent A Lost Generation of Women At Work?

 

“Societies need to think much more seriously and imaginatively about how to address the often-prohibitive costs of childcare and elder care. For many years I was against positive discrimination, because I never wanted to wonder whether I had been promoted for my capabilities or my gender. But I have changed my mind because we cannot afford to wait: at the current rate of progress, we are not looking at only a generation to achieve gender equality in the economy – it’s 267 years.”
