GOTAVERKEN B&W K—GF ENGINES — FUEL VALVE REPLACEMENT AND OVERHAUL
|D O W N L O A D|
Here is a good instructional video produced by Gotaverken Burmeister & Wein specialists and devoted to the fuel valves installed on the K-KF engines and demonstrating the process of their replacement and overhaul. This operation has been described in the Instruction Book, as well - refer to the Volume 2 - Maintenance Parts 901-2, 909-8.
Before we commence the work, we must follow five safety measures, namely - stop the engine, block the starting mechanism by closing the tap for the starting air, connect the turning gear, open the display cocks, close the oil-supply tap. Once these operations have been satisfactorily completed, you can then begin the replacement of the fuel valve.
It is assumed that the following items are at hand - a normal tool kit, a replacement valve normally collected at the time of purchase from the stores, various cleaning/grinding materials. There are some special tools commonly required, such as the extractor and grinding and milling tools for the fuel valve. Note that we have another instructional video from Gotaverken covering the replacement and overhaul of the starting air valve.
