Place of Execution of Job

Navlakhi Port (INDIA)


RA Power Solutions team of two technicians with portable crankshaft repair equipment was immediately deputed to Navlakhi Port in western part of India. On inspection of crankshaft following was observed:


Main observations of the crankshaft of Daihatsu Engine 5DK-20 after inspection:


i) The crankpin no. 3 was badly damaged due to seizure of the bearing. The bearing white metal was badly embedded on the crankpin diameter. 


ii) On visual inspection it was observed that the radius fillet of both sides was  damaged and original profile of radius fillet was lost. 


iii) After removal of bearing material from the crankpin diameter deep scoring marks and multiple depressions were observed.


vi)The crankpin was subject to MPI test for crack detection, multiple cracks were observed having length ranging from 3.0 mm to 19 mm. All the cracks were hairline cracks. 


v) Hardness was taken and was found on the higher side even up to 515 BHN. This was the scattered hardness. 


vi) Deflection of complete crankshaft was checked and was observed within limits. 


Rejection of crankshaft by reputed Singapore based crankshaft repair companies


The damaged crankshaft of Daihatsu 5DK-20 was inspected by three leading crankshaft repair companies based in Singapore who rejected the crankshaft and declared it beyond repair on site because of following reasons:


i) The crank pin of Daihatsu 5DK-20 diameter is  170mm and the bearing width is only 78 mm. The companies in Singapore don't have the equipment which can be placed on the crank pin with small bearing width for on site grinding purpose. 


ii)  Since both sides of the radius fillet were damaged they  insisted on removal of the crankshaft from the engine block and sending it to the workshop for repair if possible. 


iii) The presence of multiple cracks and higher hardness of crankpin was also one of the reasons for rejection of the crankshaft. 


Successful repair executed by RA Power of Daihatsu engine 5DK-20 crankshaft with damaged radius fillet


RA Power Solutions technicians successfully repaired the radius fillet of both sides and executed the grinding of crank pin no.3 to the under size of 2.0 mm.


All the parameters were checked after crankshaft repair as per the International standard and manufacturer manual and were observed within limits.
