    To eliminate the possibility of oil leakage at the adjustable idler gear stud location, Detroit Diesel recommends the following: ‪

  • When rebuilding a Series 60 engine, or if the gear case is removed for any reason, the three original adjustable idler gear studs should be removed and replaced with new studs.
  • Before pressing studs into the gear case, coat the shanks and underside of the stud heads with Loctite® No. 242 Sealant. This will prevent any oil leakage around the studs during engine operation.

An opening is provided in the center of the gear case for the installation of the spindle and bull gear. See Figure "Bull Gear and Spindle Location" .‪

There is a drilled oil passage in the gear case casting for lubrication of the air compressor. See Figure "Air Compressor Lubrication Gallery (EGR Model)" .‪

Note: Do not use the oil plug location for an oil supply or for checking oil pressure.

Inspection of Gear Case EGR Model

Inspect the gear case as follows:‪

warning

EYE INJURY

To avoid injury from flying debris when using compressed air, wear adequate eye protection (face shield or safety goggles) and do not exceed 276 kPa (40 psi) air pressure.‪

Inspect the gear case as follows:‪

  1. Clean all of the old gasket sealer from the mating surfaces of the gear case, gear case cover, and engine block. Refer to "Gasket Eliminator Removal," in the "GENERAL INFORMATION" Section at the beginning of this manual.
  2. Clean the gasket material from the mating surfaces of any components or access covers that were removed from the gear case cover or gear case. Clean all of the parts with clean fuel oil and dry with compressed air.
  3. Remove the oil gallery plug at the top of the gear case.
  4. Use compressed air to ensure the oil gallery is completely free of blockage. If necessary, use a wire brush to clean the gear case oil gallery.
  5. Inspect the gear case for stress cracks, breaks, or other damage. Repair or replace as necessary.
  6. Inspect the adjustable idler gear studs for signs of galling or scoring. Replace as necessary.
  7. Inspect all the individual components as outlined under the appropriate section.

Section 1.13.2
Installation of Gear Case EGR Model

Install the gear case as follows:‪

  1. Apply a thin coat of Loctite® 518 or equivalent to the rear side of the of the gear case and install a new O-ring on rear side of gear case near air compressor drive opening. See Figure "Gear Case O-ring Installation Location and Loctite Application" .
