ENGINE INSTALLATION & SERVICE HANDBOOK Caterpillar


Introduction

Usage:



Exceptional value is built into every Caterpillar engine. Whether the application is electric power generation, marine propulsion, industrial, or petroleum; the goal of the Caterpillar factory and dealer network resources is to provide the end-user with years of dependable, economical service. One of the key factors involved in ensuring optimum service life and operating efficiency is the suitability of the installation. The engine must be properly installed in an environment where it functions as designed and is properly maintained.

This booklet is designed to be used as an on-the-job reference guide in conducting Caterpillar engine installation audits, commissionings, and performance analyses. Its use is intended only for engineers and technicians knowledgeable of the concepts and principles contained in the reference publications. The publications on the following page should be consulted if detailed information on the subject is desired. Additionally, whenever engine performance data such as heat rejection and air flow is available in the Caterpillar Technical Marketing Information (TMI), it should be used instead of the Rules of Thumb contained in this guide.

An additional pocket reference for servicemen working with electrical equipment is "Ugly's Electrical Reference", FORM #SEBD0983.

A pocket reference for Marine Applications is available. It is called "The Marine Analyst Service Handbook", FORM #LEBV4830.
