MBE 4000 OIL HEAT EXCHANGER AND FILTER HOUSING

Perform the following procedures for removal and installation of the oil heat exchanger and filter housing. ‪

Oil Heat Exchanger and Filter Housing Removal

Remove the oil heat exchanger and filter housing as follows: ‪

HOT COOLANT

To avoid scalding from the expulsion of hot coolant, never remove the cooling system pressure cap while the engine is at operating temperature. Wear adequate protective clothing (face shield, rubber gloves, apron, and boots). Remove the cap slowly to relieve pressure.

  1. When the engine is cool, drain the coolant from the radiator.
  2. Remove the turbocharger from the engine.
  3. Disconnect the coolant pump shunt line from the coolant pump inlet pipe and move it out of the way.
  4. Remove the oil filter cap. Inspect the O-ring and filter for damage and replace them if necessary. Drain the oil remaining in the filter into a clean container.
  5. Disconnect the wiring harness from the oil pressure/temperature sensor.
  6. Remove the oil filter/heat exchanger housing from the cylinder block. See Figure 42152 . Catch any oil that drains out in a clean container. Discard the gasket and set aside the housing bolts for later installation.

    Heat Exchanger Housing Removal

    Note: The oil filter housing and the heat exchanger housing are made from the same casting.

  7. Remove the oil heat exchanger (oil radiator) from the heat exchanger housing. Discard the gaskets and save the heat exchanger bolts for later installation.

Oil Heat Exchanger and Filter Housing Installation

Install the oil heat exchanger and filter housing as follows: ‪

  1. Check the oil heat exchanger and the inside of the heat exchanger housing for corrosion, contamination by metal particles, or abrasive material, such as sand.
    1. If corrosion is found, clean or replace the oil heat exchanger, as necessary.
    2. Clean the mating surfaces of the oil heat exchanger and heat exchanger housing. Remove any bits of adhering gasket material.
  2. Install the oil heat exchanger and new gaskets on the heat exchanger housing. Tighten the heat exchanger bolts 25 Nm (18 lbft).
  3. Install the heat exchanger housing on the cylinder block. Install the housing bolts and tighten them in the order shown in see Figure 42154 . Tighten each bolt 60 Nm (44 lbft).

    1. Clean the mating surfaces of the heat exchanger housing and the cylinder block. Remove any bits of adhering gasket material.
    2. Replace the heat exchanger housing gasket.
  4. Install a new filter element and O-ring in the oil filter housing. See Figure 42155 .

  5. Install the oil filter cap. Tighten the cap nut 25 Nm (18 lbft).
  6. Install the oil pressure/temperature sensor on the heat exchanger/filter housing.
  7. Connect the wiring harness to the oil pressure/temperature sensor.
  8. Install the turbocharger on the engine. Refer to section .
  9. Connect the coolant pump shunt line to the coolant pump inlet pipe.
  10. Fill the cooling system. Refer to section .

    PERSONAL INJURY

    Diesel engine exhaust and some of its constituents are known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and other reproductive harm.

    • Always start and operate an engine in a well ventilated area.
    • If operating an engine in an enclosed area, vent the exhaust to the outside.
    • Do not modify or tamper with the exhaust system or emission control system.
  11. Start the engine. Check the gauge for the correct oil pressure; check the oil lubrication system and the coolant pump inlet pipe for leaks. The correct oil pressures are listed in Table .
