MBE 4000 EGR PISTON, PISTON RING, AND CONNECTING ROD

The difference from the non-EGR engine cylinder liner to the EGR engine, is a groove on the top part of the cylinder liner, which houses the carbon scraper ring. The EGRengine uses a new tool for piston installation; however, all other procedures are the same for the EGRand non-EGRengine. ‪

Piston Removal for EGR Engine

Perform the following steps to remove the piston from an EGRengine: ‪

NOTICE:

The carbon scraper ring has a smaller internal diameter than the piston skirt diameter; therefore, the piston installation and removal must be carried out with the carbon scraper ring removed.

Note: Piston removal in the EGRengine is performed with the engine facing upright not turned on it's side.

  1. Remove the carbon scraper ring from the cylinder liner groove.

    Removing Carbon Scraper Ring

  2. Push the piston and connecting rod assembly out of the cylinder liner.
  3. Follow remaining steps for non-EGRengine piston removal. Refer to section .

Piston Installation for EGR Engine

Perform the following steps to install the piston in an EGRengine: ‪

NOTICE:

The carbon scraper ring has a smaller internal diameter than the piston skirt diameter; therefore, the piston installation and removal must be carried out with the carbon scraper ring uninstalled or removed.

Note: Piston installation in the EGRengine is performed with the engine facing upright not turned on it's side.

  1. Install J tool (J 47110) to the cylinder block. See Figure 44113 .

    Installation of Piston

    Note: There are NO arrows on the top of the EGRpiston to direct the installation. The piston can be installed in any direction and it will be correct.

  2. Push the piston into cylinder liner, using ring compressor Jtool (J 45983) to compress the piston rings.
  3. Clean the carbon scraper ring seat in the cylinder liner.
  4. After piston is installed, install carbon scraper ring in the cylinder liner groove. See Figure 44178 .
  5. Check carbon scraper ring for correct fit after installation.
  6. Follow remaining steps for piston installation in a non-EGRengine . Refer to section .
