We found this engine in parts in the engine room of a jack-up. After review of the parts we did an overhaul of the complete engine. The activities we did, among other things, were:
- Cylinder head overhaul incl. new valves and injectors
- Renewal of the pistons, piston rings and cylinder liners
- Renewal of the main bearings and big- end bearings
- Overhaul of the fuel pump and turbocharger
- Renewal of the water pump and oil pump
We placed a new radiator and a new generator as well. We are proud of the result.
The owner of this Volvo Penta IPS 600 felt vibrations after hearing a bang. After further inspection it turned out that the IPS shafts were curved. We dismantled both the IPS drives and brought them to our workshop. We took the IPS drives completely apart, replaced the curved shafts and assembled the IPS drives with new bearings and seals. Of course, all gear and bearing clearances have been reshimmed for optimal operational reliability. We mounted the IPS drives back on the boat and conducted a successful sea trial.
This Volvo Penta TAD1242VE would not start up. After diagnosis, the internal relay in the DCU was found to be broken due to a power failure. We replaced the DCU and the engine was working properly again.
This engine powered a set of hydraulic pumps on a rig.
