Crankshaft Vibration Damper - Inspect
i02469814
Crankshaft Vibration Damper
- Inspect
SMCS Code: 1205-040
Damage to the crankshaft vibration damper or failure
of the crankshaft vibration damper will increase
torsional vibrations. These vibrations will result
in damage to the crankshaft and to other engine
components. A deteriorating vibration damper will
cause excessive gear train noise at variable points
in the speed range.
The damper is mounted to the crankshaft which is
located behind the belt guard on the front of the
engine.
Caterpillar recommends replacing the vibration
damper for any of the following reasons:
• The engine has had a failure because of a broken
crankshaft.
• The S·O·S oil analysis detected a worn crankshaft
front bearing.
• The S·O·S oil analysis detected a large amount of
gear train wear that is not caused by a lack of oil.
NOTICE
If the water temperature regulator is installed incorrectly, it will cause the engine to overheat.
• Fluid leakage is detected during inspection.
7. Install a new seal in the water temperature
regulator housing. Install a new water temperature
regulator and a new gasket. Install the
water temperature regulator. Install the water
temperature regulator housing.
Refer to Disassembly and Assembly, “Crankshaft
Vibration Damper and Pulley - Remove and Install”
for the procedure to remove the damper and for the
procedure to install the damper.
8. Install the turbocharger water line and the hose.
Tighten the hose clamp.
9. Add the cooling system coolant.
Note: The radiator is full when the sight gauge is
completely covered. Also, the radiator is full when
the coolant level reaches the top of the angled cut on
the filler tube. Refer to Operation and Maintenance
Manual, “Cooling System Coolant Level - Check”.
• The housing is damaged.
The vibration damper can be used again if none of
the above conditions are found or if the vibration
damper is not damaged.

Cleaning Primary Air Filter
Elements
NOTICE
Caterpillar recommends certified air filter cleaning services available at participating Caterpillar dealers. The
Caterpillar cleaning process uses proven procedures
to assure consistent quality and sufficient filter life.
Observe the following guidelines if you attempt to
clean the filter element:
Do not tap or strike the filter element in order to remove dust.
Do not wash the filter element.
Illustration 165
g00102316
1. Remove cover (1) for the air filter housing.
2. Remove primary filter element (2) from the air
filter housing.
Use low pressure compressed air in order to remove
the dust from the filter element. Air pressure must not
exceed 207 kPa (30 psi). Direct the air flow up the
pleats and down the pleats from the inside of the filter
element. Take extreme care in order to avoid damage
to the pleats.
Do not use air filters with damaged pleats, gaskets, or
seals. Dirt entering the engine will cause damage to
engine components.
3. Clean the inside of the air filter housing.
4. If the machine is equipped with a vacuator valve,
clean the vacuator valve on the cover for the air
filter housing.
5. Install a clean primary air filter element. Install the
cover for the air filter housing.
Note: Refer to “Cleaning Primary Air Filter Elements”.
6. Reset the engine air filter service indicator.
If the yellow piston in the indicator moves into the red
zone after starting the engine or the exhaust smoke
is still black after installation of a clean primary filter
element, install a new primary filter element. If the
piston remains in the red zone replace the secondary
element.
The primary air filter element can be used up to
six times if the element is properly cleaned and
inspected. When the primary air filter element is
cleaned, check for rips or tears in the filter material.
The primary air filter element should be replaced at
least one time per year. This replacement should be
performed regardless of the number of cleanings.
NOTICE
Do not clean the air filter elements by bumping or tapping. This could damage the seals. Do not use elements with damaged pleats, gaskets, or seals. Damaged elements will allow dirt to pass through. Engine
damage could result.
Visually inspect the primary air filter elements before
cleaning. Inspect the air filter elements for damage
to the seal, the gaskets, and the outer cover. Discard
any damaged air filter elements.
There are two common methods that are used to
clean primary air filter elements:
• Pressurized air
• Vacuum cleaning
134
Maintenance Section
Engine Air Filter Primary Element - Clean/Replace
Pressurized Air
Pressurized air can be used to clean primary air filter
elements that have not been cleaned more than two
times. Pressurized air will not remove deposits of
carbon and oil. Use filtered, dry air with a maximum
pressure of 207 kPa (30 psi).
SEBU7858-03
Inspecting the Primary Air Filter
Elements
Illustration 167
Illustration 166
g00281692
Note: When the primary air filter elements are
cleaned, always begin with the clean side (inside)
in order to force dirt particles toward the dirty side
(outside).
Aim the hose so that the air flows inside the element
along the length of the filter in order to help prevent
damage to the paper pleats. Do not aim the stream of
air directly at the primary air filter element. Dirt could
be forced further into the pleats.
Vacuum Cleaning
Vacuum cleaning is another method for cleaning
primary air filter elements which require daily cleaning
because of a dry, dusty environment. Cleaning with
pressurized air is recommended prior to vacuum
cleaning. Vacuum cleaning will not remove deposits
of carbon and oil.
g00281693
Inspect the clean, dry primary air filter element. Use
a 60 watt blue light in a dark room or in a similar
facility. Place the blue light in the primary air filter
element. Rotate the primary air filter element. Inspect
the primary air filter element for tears and/or holes.
Inspect the primary air filter element for light that may
show through the filter material. If it is necessary in
order to confirm the result, compare the primary air
filter element to a new primary air filter element that
has the same part number.
Do not use a primary air filter element that has any
tears and/or holes in the filter material. Do not use
a primary air filter element with damaged pleats,
gaskets or seals. Discard damaged primary air filter
elements.
Storing Primary Air Filter Elements
If a primary air filter element that passes inspection
will not be used, the primary air filter element can
be stored for future use.

Ensure that the engine can not be started while
this maintenance is being performed. To help prevent possible injury, do not use the starting motor
to turn the flywheel.
Hot engine components can cause burns. Allow
additional time for the engine to cool before measuring/adjusting valve lash clearance.
NOTICE
Only qualified service personnel should perform this
maintenance. Refer to the Service Manual or your
Caterpillar dealer for the complete valve lash adjustment procedure.
Operation of Caterpillar engines with improper valve
adjustments can reduce engine efficiency. This reduced efficiency could result in excessive fuel usage
and/or shortened engine component life.
The initial valve lash adjustment is recommended
at the first scheduled oil change. The valve lash
adjustment should then be made at every 2000 hour
interval. The adjustment is necessary due to the
initial wear of the valve train components and to the
seating of the valve train components.
This maintenance is recommended by Caterpillar
as part of a lubrication and preventive maintenance
schedule in order to help provide maximum engine
life.

Illustration 219
g00100013
The element is shown with debris.
Use a filter cutter to cut the filter element open.
Spread apart the pleats and inspect the element for
metal and for other debris. An excessive amount of
debris in the filter element can indicate a possible
failure.
If metals are found in the filter element, a magnet can
be used to differentiate between ferrous metals and
nonferrous metals.
Ferrous metals can indicate wear on steel parts and
on cast iron parts.
Nonferrous metals can indicate wear on the
aluminum parts of the engine such as main bearings,
rod bearings, or turbocharger bearings.
Small amounts of debris may be found in the filter
element. This could be caused by friction and by
normal wear. Consult your Caterpillar dealer in order
to arrange for further analysis if an excessive amount
of debris is found.

Personal injury can result from contact with refrigerant.
Contact with refrigerant can cause frost bite. Keep
face and hands away to help prevent injury.
Protective goggles must always be worn when refrigerant lines are opened, even if the gauges indicate the system is empty of refrigerant.
Always use precaution when a fitting is removed.
Slowly loosen the fitting. If the system is still under pressure, release it slowly in a well ventilated
area.
Personal injury or death can result from inhaling
refrigerant through a lit cigarette.
Inhaling air conditioner refrigerant gas through a
lit cigarette or other smoking method or inhaling
fumes released from a flame contacting air conditioner refrigerant gas, can cause bodily harm or
death.
Do not smoke when servicing air conditioners or
wherever refrigerant gas may be present.
Use a certified recovery and recycling cart to properly remove the refrigerant from the air conditioning system.
NOTICE
If the refrigerant system has been open to the outside
air (without being plugged) for more than 30 minutes,
the receiver-dryer must be replaced. Moisture will enter an open refrigerant system and cause corrosion
which will lead to component failure.
