    I’ll be hosting the 13th phone conference on March 28 beginning at 1010 pacific time.  The dial in specifics are as follows:  1-800-603-7556  code 32501612#

    Some topics:  Gas Valve Rebuilds in Switzerland. Round Table.



    Good discussion today.  I took the liberty of transcribing a few of the notes that I took.  I’m sure that I missed some of the comments, and you may need to correct others.

    I saw you guys were discussing water usage on your engines, with no apparent leaks. We have had many cases where the exhaust seats leak by. You would think the leak would be detectable via EGT’s or other trends, but we have had no luck. We will borescope an engine if we suspect heavy coolant usage.

    When repairing the leaking exhaust seats we found the o-rings were completely missing. Since then we had Markisches Werk develop a high temperature o-ring. So, far it has made an improvement.

    I hope this helps, but from my understanding exhaust seat leaks is a common issue.


    Hello Rob, can’t download the transcript. Could you mail it to me,

    Thanks, Michael
