ISSUE
A recessed grommet sealing area was machined around each coolant inlet and outlet port in the
cylinder head to give a better mating surface for the thicker rubber seal in the head gasket. See
Figure 1. The new cylinder head and gasket became effective with engine S/N: 0460866443
built on August 1, 2006.

Further improvements to the cylinder head is a change to a cast iron cup plug instead of a steel
cup plug to prevent head cracking. See Figure 2. The new cylinder head became effective with
engine S/N: 0460884866 built on April 25th, 2007.

Another improvement to the head gasket includes the removal of the vent gap around the
perimeter of the gasket. This will prevent water intrusion under the gasket which can cause
rusting and pitting of the fire deck surfaces of the cylinder block and head, but ultimately does
not affect the sealing surfaces. See Figure 3. The new cylinder head gasket became effective
with engine S/N: 0460896913 built on September 3rd, 2007.

REQUIRED ACTION
Note these items when servicing the cylinder heads and gaskets.
• Grommet style cylinder heads and gaskets MUST be used together on the same
cylinder. Do NOT mix grommet and non-grommet style cylinder heads and gaskets on
the same cylinder.
• Grommet and non-grommet style cylinder heads and gaskets can be used in the same

MBE 4000 Coolant Leaks
ISSUE
MBE 4000 engines may exhibit a high mileage concern of coolant leakage around the
cylinder liner.
CAUSE
The current stainless steel shim installed between the cylinder liner and cylinder block
counterbore area cannot adequately seal out coolant in this area. The coolant acts as a
lubricant, causing movement between the cylinder liner and cylinder block and subsequent wear
in the counterbore area. Coolant will then leak past the counterbore area. See below for pictures
showing the affected areas.

Figure 3 – Leakage on the Liner Flange
-2-
2/29/2008
08 TS-8Rev
-3-
2/29/2008
REQUIRED ACTION
To seal the counterbore area from coolant and prevent liner movement, Detroit Diesel has
released a new cylinder liner design which uses an additional rubber D-ring just below the liner
flange to seal against the coolant. See Figure 4.
Figure 4 – New Design Cylinder Liner and D-ring Seal
New cylinder block service procedures have been prepared to repair existing blocks.
The procedure involves the following:
•
Cutting the failed cylinder block counterbores to leave a full contact area for the shim
and liner flange.
•
Installation of a new design cylinder liner with an additional D-ring seal in all
cylinder positions.
REQUIRED MATERIAL
Table 1 provides a list of the new service kit and individual part numbers. The liner kits contain
the new liner, new 0.15 mm standard shim, new sealing D-ring, the two existing liner bottom
o-rings, and the scraper ring (EPA04 only). The new 0.15 mm standard shim and sealing D-ring
are also listed separately, as are thicker shims if the depth of the freshly cut counterbores
require them to reach the correct cylinder liner protrusion specifications. Since the liners are
being replaced, the piston rings must also be replaced, and the applicable ring kits are listed for
your convenience.

REPAIR PROCEDURE
•
Reference SIB 08 MBE 4000-1Rev (EPA07) and SIB 08 MBE 4000-1Rev (EPA04) for
information on cutting the cylinder block counterbores using the existing Kent-Moore
PT-2250-B Porta-Tool.
•
Only the FAILED cylinders should have their counterbores cut. This decision is based on
the condition of the cylinder block counterbore sealing area. See Figures 1-3 on pages
1 and 2 for examples of failed counterbores.
•
The machining of the counterbores MUST be done correctly to accept the cylinder liner
shim and arrive at the correct liner protrusion specifications as listed in the EPA07 MBE
4000 Workshop Manual, DDC-SVC-MAN-0026 (6SE420) and MBE 4000 Workshop
Manual, DDC-SVC-MAN-0023 (6SE412).
•
ALL liners must be replaced with the new version and D-ring, even if that particular
cylinder is not having its counterbore cut. Installation of the new liner and D-ring seal
should prevent future failures.
•
Ensure that the new liner diameter tolerance code corresponds to the one marked on the
piston. The new liners should have a tolerance code B which requires a piston of either
code BA or BC. Reference to sections 1.4.3 and 1.19.1.1 in the EPA07 MBE 4000
Workshop Manual, DDC-SVC-MAN-0026 (6SE420) and sections 1.3.2 and 1.18.1.1 in
the MBE 4000 Workshop Manual, DDC-SVC-MAN-0023 (6SE412).
•
Start the repair by measuring the liner protrusion. Install the new liner with the new
standard 0.15mm shim and measure the liner protrusion as noted by
SIB 08 MBE 4000-1Rev (EPA07) and SIB 08 MBE 4000-1Rev (EPA04). Do NOT install
the D-ring & O-ring at this point. Mark the liners for cylinder position.
•
If the liner protrusion values are not within specifications, then you will need to cut the
counterbore. Reference section 1.4.1.3 in the EPA07 MBE 4000 Workshop Manual,
DDC-SVC-MAN-0026 (6SE420) and section 1.3.1.2 in the MBE 4000 Workshop Manual,
DDC-SVC-MAN-0023 (6SE412) for cylinder liner protrusion specifications.
08 TS-8Rev
-5-
2/29/2008
•
Install the new D-ring to the cylinder liner. Make sure the D-ring is installed dry with the
flat surface against the vertical face of the liner. See Figure 4 above, and
SIB 08 MBE 4000-1Rev (EPA07) and SIB 08 MBE 4000-1Rev (EPA04). Be careful not
to over-stretch the D-ring when it is installed over the liner flange.
•
The shim MUST be installed into the cylinder block, not on the liner.
•
Before installing the cylinder liner with D-ring into the cylinder block, apply a light coating
of clean engine oil to the D-ring.
•
Ensure the D-ring doesn’t roll or twist when installing the liner into the block.
•
Measure liner protrusion again. Follow the directions in 08 MBE 4000-1Rev (EPA07) and
SIB 08 MBE 4000-1Rev (EPA04). The values should be the same as measured above.
If not, remove the liner and check the installation.
•
If re-using the pistons, be sure to install new piston rings.
•
If installing new pistons, be sure to select the correct piston and piston cooling nozzle.
Reference Technical Service letter 05 TS-55Rev2. Please note that the current piston
kits (which contain the piston and liner) do NOT contain the new liner. Order only the
individual piston and cooling nozzle.
•
Before installing the cylinder heads, ensure they are not worn or defective which may
contribute to coolant leaks. For example, look for cracks around the cup plug on the rear
face of the heads.
