    We are having problems with the lever of the barring gear on a 18V46 engine. very often it gets broken.
    Is there a solution to fix this.

    Also i don’t see forum of the 18V46 engines.

    Does it break from vibration fatigue, or from Operators pulling and jerking on it?



    It is breaking from vibration fatique.
    Do you have any solution.



    We used to have the barring lever break from fatigue – not sure how it helped but we now grease the mechanism more often now and that reduced the failures significantly – please don’t ask me the engineering behind it – it just seemed to work.
