Have what it takes to be a member of “The Few The Proud”?????

Then answer these 3 SIMPLE questions.

Question 1

An engine miss is being diagnosed using a cylinder leakage test. Technician A says that any cylinder with over 20 percent leakage has excessive leakage. Technician B says that air leaking from the tailpipe indicates a cracked cylinder head. Who is right?

Question 2

Technician A says a special puller and installer tool is required to remove and install the vibration damper. Technician B says that if the inertia ring on the vibration damper is loose, the damper must be replaced. Who is right?

Question 3

If new rings are installed without removing the ring ridge, what may be the result?

Ok boys and girls. I

Ok boys and girls.
I purposely let this run for 2 months.

Figured 2 months would be enough time to see who out there could come up with SOME SORT of answers.

No takers.
Nothing.
Not even a WRONG answer.
Just too bad.
A shame actually.

“No Guts No Glory”
“Failure Is Never An Option”

Here are the answers.

Question 1.

Technician “A” is correct.

If cylinder leakage exceeds 20 percent, check for air escaping from the tailpipe, the positive crankcase ventilation (PVC) valve opening in the rocker arm cover, and the top of the throttle body or carburetor.

Question 2.

BOTH technicians are CORRECT.

Technician “A” is correct in stating that a special puller and installer tool are required to remove and install the vibration damper. Using a regular gear puller to remove the vibration damper will damage the damper.

Technician “B” is correct in stating that a loose inertia ring on the damper requires replacement of the damper.

Question 3.

Answer is the piston ring or top compression ring may crack or break.

Failing to remove the ridge ring may cause piston ring lands (and or) the top compression ring to crack or break after the engine is assembled and started.
