Industrial Engine Repair & Rebuild 201

Course Description
A fully hands on, interactive dive into commercial and industrial piston engines. This course will cover diesel and gaseous fueled engine fundamentals, disassembly and reassembly, operational components, emissions systems, and control systems. While this course is taught with engines used in power generation – it can easily be applied to engines used in other applications such as power units, pumps, construction equipment and more!
Schedule Details

General Course Overview:
Day 1: Class will begin with introductions and a pre-assessment test to gauge rough skill level. Students will be paired into groups of 2-3 and begin with an instructor supervised teardown of a rebuildable industrial engine down to the bare block. We’ll move to the classroom and go over internal components, different designs, reuse guidelines, reassembly practices and procedures ect. Class will end with students beginning to inspect the individual parts for reuse.

Day 2: Students will complete their inspection of parts for reuse and begin an instructor supervised reassembly. As different groups complete their engines, we will test fire the engines to confirm they start, run and produce oil pressure. Groups will be broken off to perform individual component inspection and testing while the rest of the groups complete their engines.

Day 3: Groups who did not complete their engines will wrap things up today while the remaining students continue different component inspections and testing. Once all engines are up and running class will move into discussing different governing systems.

Day 4: Class will continue discussing different governing systems and move to engine controls and emissions. We’ll move between the lab and classroom showcasing the different systems, troubleshooting, operation, and setup.

Day 5: Final day will be an open floor discussion of everything discussed throughout the class. Students will be sent into the lab and given different machines with engine issues to troubleshoot. Class will end with a post-assessment exam and wrap-up of any further questions.
