DT466 International Diesel Engine In-Frame

After removing the radiator assembly from our International DT466 Diesel Engine and then the oil pan that was required to check for leaking liners, The next step is to remove the cylinder head. The head will be sent out for inspection at a local machine shop, the head will be put into a hot tank so all the fittings and plugs have to be removed . The machine shop will do a full service which includes a magniflux  to check for any cracks and a valve / valve seat grind to true up everything back to new. The turbocharger will be rebuilt and injectors  sent to a  fuel injection shop for flushing and bench testing to check for proper operation. These are necessary steps for a Diesel Mechanic to ensure a healthy start up after assembly.
