DUQ1-008E Cracks on Piston skirts RTA58 -68 - 76 - 84

It was ascertained that on some RTA "8" series engines in service piston skirts have been cracked at the flange clamped between a piston head and a piston rod, when they were overhauled. On this problem, the licensees in Japan have been examining and investigating earnestly in cooperation with each other as well as the licenser, Sulzer, and then we reached a conclusion that the piston skirts can be employed continuously without any problem though they get cracks.

MAN B&W SL2 017-654 Crankshaft Torsional Damper

Service experience has proven that the intermediate inspection of the torsional vibration damper on the crankshaft of our mentioned GenSets can be omitted without compromising a reliable engine operation.
This applies to both for new engines and to engines in service.

Consequently, we have deleted the intermediate inspection from our planned maintenance programme (510-04.00), thus saving related dismantling and inspection work.

MAN B&W SL2017-653/PRP Accumulators - All Makes

We refer to our service letter SL2006-469 concerning accumulators.
The information in this letter and in the instructions attached replaces the information given in our service letter SL06-469/JOF.
To prevent undesirable pressure peaks in the hydraulic oil system, we emphasise the importance of checking the nitrogen pressure regularly, which according to the instruction manual means every 2,000 hours or every 6 months, whichever occurs first.
